Spicy Potatoes

If you like spicy food and potatoes, you are going to love this. A very simple side dish which can be served with roti or rice and curd. I made this with baby potatoes, you can use the normal potatoes as well. Just take care not to mash the potatoes.So, lets get started...


1. Baby potatoes - 12
2. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
    Chilly powder - 1 tsp
    Coriander powder - 1 tsp
    Finely chopped ginger - 1/2 tsp
    Finely chopped garlic - 1/2 tsp
3. Onion - 1, finely chopped
    Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
    Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
    Garam masala - 1/2 tsp (check cooking tips for the recipe)
    Shredded coconut - 2 tsp (optional)
    Curry leaves - a few


1. Boil the baby potatoes(unpeeled) in a pan till they are about 3/4th cooked. Peel them and marinate with the ingredients listed under item 2.
2. In a pan, heat oil and splutter mustard and cumin seeds. Add onions and saute till they are light brown.
3. Add the marinated potatoes, mix well and cover and cook for 5 mins. Sprinkle a little water to prevent burning the potatoes.
4. Add coconut, garam masala and curry leaves combine well. Keep frying till the potaotes are dark in colour and well coated with masala

I love this with rice and kachiya moru.
