These days whenever I cook, I am trying out dishes which are done in a jiffy and everyone is happy about it! :) When in need what's better than potatoes. They are very comforting and easy to make! Don't you all agree??
I try to pick up small fingerlings whenever I get a chance, cos I love cooking with them!
You can try peeling them, but if you think its a pain to peel, then like me, you can just leave the skin on and cook them like that!
This is a quick and easy side dish to make, goes good with daal or with sambar.
This dish can also be made with regular potatoes, cut into bite size pieces.
I boil my fingerlings for couple of minutes in the microwave before roasting them in the pan. Always remember to add salt while boiling, this will let the salt penetrate the potato.
15-20 fingerlings or baby potatoes
Water with salt for boiling the potatoes
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp amchoor powder (more or less)
1 tsp chilli powder
pinch of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1-2 tsp oil
Chopped coriander leaves for garnish
Wash and boil the potatoes for 3-4 minutes in Microwave or stove top. They shouldn't get mushy.
Heat the oil in an open pan.
Add the boiled potatoes and toss them around.
Add all the powders and give them a good toss to coat all of them.
Cook only for about 5-6 minutes, till they are fully cooked thru.
Add the chopped coriander leaves and toss them again.
Serve hot as a side dish.
