Crispy Baby Potatoes

An easy breezy Potato recipe that can be left on low flame to get crisp. Must try for potato lovers !!

Ingredients :

  1. Baby potatoes 1/2 kg
  2. Oil 2 table spoons
  3. Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
  4. Carom seeds 1/2 tsp
  5. Chaat masala 1/2 tsp
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
  8. Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp
  9. Coriander powder 1 tsp

Method :

  1. Wash the potatoes well, under running water, rubbing them between your fingers to get the dirt off.
  2. In an iron skillet, on medium flame add the oil. To this add the larger potatoes first. Cover to cook, and then add the smaller ones. I have left the skin on .(The potatoes I have used were really tiny ones. If yours are medium sized you can slice them in half or boil for 5 mins first.) 
  3. Add the salt to this , stir and cover another 5 mins. By now they would have become soft. I have slightly crushed the bigger ones using the back of a spatula, so it roasts nicely. Now we add the cumin seeds and the carom seeds. We add them now so it doesn’t burn as the potatoes are getting crisp.
  4. Stir occasionally and cook without cover for another 15 – 20 mins on low flame, until the desired crispness is reached.
  5. Turn off the flame and add all the spices. Iron skillet stays hot for a while, and that is enough to cook the spices. Fold in all the spices till it coats the potatoes well. If using a regular pan mix the spices and keep the medium flame for another 2 -3 mins.

Crispy crunchy potatoes are ready. Good for munching with a meal or as a side dish !!
