Method:

  1. Wash the baby potatoes. Prick each baby potato with fork and add it to a bowl of water along with salt. The reason for pricking the potatoes is when we parboil the potatoes, the salt added in the water will be absorbed by the potatoes and the potatoes tastes good. Parboil the potatoes on stove top or you can pressure cook allowing for 1 whistle. Once the potatoes are parboiled, peel them and keep it ready

  2. Lets prepare the marinating mixture. Take a bowl and add thick curd and the rest of the spice powders along with turmeric powder, salt and kasoori methi leaves and mix well to make a thick paste

  3. Add the marinating mixture to the parboiled potatoes and coat each potato nicely with the spices. Cover the marinated potatoes bowl with a lid and refrigerate it for 4- hours or overnight. I prefer overnight as it eases the process of baking in the morning. 

  4. After 4-6 hours or overnight, pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the marinated potatoes from refrigerator and place it in a foil wrapped baking tray or cake tin and spray a teaspoon of oil or ghee and bake it for 20-25 minutes. 10-12 minutes, after the baking has started, open the oven and flip the potatoes carefully and spray another teaspoon of oil or ghee and bake it till both the sides of the potatoes are crispy and baked fully. Remove the baking tray and allow it to cool in cooling rack and then place each potatoes in plate

  5. Finally place the baked potatoes in serving bowl and garnish with thinly sliced onions, capsicum and tomatoes and serve!
