Spicy Baby Potato Curry

I love potato, you love potato, everyone loves potato!! Isn't it??? and that too these cute little baby potatoes are adorably delicious for me.

Boil it and spice it up with the flavors of your choice and it is a delicious snack by itself!

This time we wanted to try a nice spicy version to pack it along with curd rice for lunch. Hence added some of my favorite Indian spices like pepper etc and make it spicy and delicious :)

Wash and pressure cook the baby potatoes for three whistles. 

Peel the skin and poke holes on the potatoes with a fork so that the spices seep through the potatoes. 

Take a tsp of oil in a pan and fry red chillies, corinader seeds, cumin seeds, pepper, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves for two minutes in low flame. Allow it to come to room temperature. Grind it along with ginger and garlic and make a coarse powder. Keep this aside. 

Take 4 tsps of oil in a pan and drop in half a tsp of jeera. Once it crackles, drop in the baby potatoes and fry for a while in low flame. The potatoes should get roasted on all sides to a golden brown color. 

Finally add the powdered spice mix and saute in low flame for 5 mins. 

Serve it hot with curd rice or pack it for lunch :)
