Potato roast are always our favorite. Baby potato roast are even more special and yummy. A very simple and easy recipe, yet so delicious. This can be made in many methods depending on the spices that we add in the roast.  Simple method can be just frying the baby potato's with Sambar Powder. In this recipe, i have used freshly ground masala to increase the texture, taste and flavor. Spice lovers can increase the spice in this recipe, I have used less spice, instead I have used paprika powder to get a nice texture. I prefer Paprika Powder as it gives nice red color, but the spice is very less.

Baby Potatoes250gms
Turmeric Powder1/2 teaspoon
Paprika Powder1 teaspoon
SaltTo Taste
Oil1 tablespoon

For Grinding:
Channa dal1/2 teaspoon
Urid dal1/2 teaspoon
Coriander Seeds1/2 teaspoon
Red chilli
Cumin Seeds1/2 teaspoon
Peppercorns1/2 teaspoon

For Seasoning:
Oil1 tablespoon
Mustard Seeds1 teaspoon
Hinga Pinch

  1. Dry roast the grinding ingredients in a pan and cool them and grind it to a nice powder. I love to use freshly ground spice as it will give a nice flavour to the dish, but this step is optional. You can very well use any spice powders or Sambar powder and skip this step

  2. Boil the baby potatoes and peel them and keep it ready. You can cook it in pressure cooker allowing it for 1 whistle. Don't overcook the potatoes and it may tend to break while tossing with spices.

  3. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds starts to sputter, add hing and fry for a second. Add turmeric powder and add boiled potatoes and toss them once.

  4. Now add the freshly ground spices to the pan and toss the potatoes so that the spice gets evenly coated in each baby potato. Keep the flame very low and sprinkle a teaspoon of oil and roast it nicely. Do not close the pan with the lid as the steam make the potatoes to become mushy. Try not to use spatula as it may break the potatoes. 

  5. Garnish the roasted yummy baby potato roast with fried onions and serve with any rice varieties or even with chapati

  1. Yummy recipe.. I boiled the baby potatoes for 2 whistles in a pressure cooker but they were still uncooked and a a little hard to bite. Should I have boiled them for one more whistle?

    1. If you feel that Potatoes are not cooked, please go for one more whistle.
