Potato Curry- Baby Potatoes

8 baby potatoes (white/ yellow)
Onion 2 (finely chopped)
Tomatoes 2 (medium size)
Curry leaves a sprig
Coriander/ Cilantro 3-4 strands finely chopped
Urad Dal 2 tsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Sambar Powder 1tsp (buy MTR madras sambar powder as replacement)
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida 1/4 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Boil the baby potatoes, peel and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan, add urad dal,mustard seed and cumin seed and once the mustard seed splutter, add the asafoetida and curry leaves. Add the chopped onion and sauté till light brown, then add the tomatoes and sauté in medium heat.
Add the boiled and peeled potatoes, sambar powder, red chilly powder,turmeric and salt. Cover the pan with a lid for 2 minutes so that the flavor of the masalas seeps into the potato. Open the lid and fry the potato in med-low heat until it is nice and golden.
Garnish the dish with finely chopped coriander before serving.

  1. Hi
    yummy recipe. I hope you don't mind my pointing out something here. I learnt this from my Grandma. Using onions and asafoetida in the same dish dims both flavours. You might understand that both of them have very strong flavours. They beat each other out. Try using either one and you will find the result amazing. :)
