Baby Potato Fry/Roast

Who doesn't like potatoes. This is one vegetable which anyone in the family would love to eat in any form, baked or boiled or fried. This is a quick and simple recipe which goes well with any rice. My favorite combo is with rasam and curd rice.


Baby Potatoes - 1/4 kg
Turmeric Powder -1/4 tsp

Coriander powder -1 tsp
Cumin/Jeera powder -1 tsp
Chilli powder -1/2 tsp
Salt and hing as required

To Temper

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds -1/2 tsp
Jeera/cumin seeds -1/2 tsp

Urad dal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Red Chillies - 2


Pressure cook the baby potatoes for 2-3 whistles. Make sure they are soft but not mushy. Allow to cool, peel the skin and keep it in a wide bowl.

Add all the other ingredients (spice powders, salt and turmeric powder) to the potatoes and mix well. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. 

Heat oil in a pan, do the tempering and add the marinated potatoes. Cover and cook on low flame stirring every now and then until all the potatoes are roasted well. Yummy potato fry is ready to be enjoyed with any rice!!
