Delicious Spicy Baby Potato Roast
Who does not love potatoes? And when we fry the potatoes, it is the most comforting food...hmmm...Simply out of the world!!!!As always,it was my weekend special delight:))
1) Baby potatoes - 500 gms
2) Red chilly powder - 2 tsp or to taste
3) Coriander cumin powder - 1tbsp
4) Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
5) Salt to taste
6) Mustard seeds - 1/2tsp
7) Hing - little
8) Oil - 2 to 3 tblsp
9) Curry leaves - few
10)Fresh cilantro or coriander leaves for garnish
Wash thoroughly the potatoes and boil it for 15 minutes(I microwaved it).
If you want you can leave the skin on or remove it. I did not remove the skin for two reasons.Firstly,the potatoes has more nutrients when it is eaten with the skin and other reason the potatoes were too small,I thought that it might loose its shape while peeling the skin.Poke each potato with a fork all around it few times.Marinate them with the above dry spices along with little bit oil for 30 minutes.Just before frying it add salt.
In a saute pan, pour oil and saute the mustard seeds till it crackles,add hing and curry leaves now.Then,add the potatoes to the pan and saute till they become golden brown in color and the crust becomes crispy.Garnish with coriander leaves.
Yummy potato fry is ready!!! Serve it with hot steaming rice and sambar.Enjoy....
