Spicy Small potatoes.


Small potatoes are always eye catching and  they have the distinct flavour of the muddy earth . My mother used to make potato roast  and which we all loved to eat . Later we  got one more recipe which was like a gravy . This too is equivalently good  and is well suited for rice and rotis .Now for the method.


Small potatoes –  1 cup

Onion -2

Tomato -1

Ginger garlic paste – 2 tsp

Jeera/Cumin seeds  – 1 tsp

Ajwain – 1 tsp

Red Chilli powder -1 tsp

Cumin  powder –  1 tsp

Coriander powder – 1 tsp

Kasoori methi – 1tsp

Curry leaves – few

Salt and oil.


Wash the potatoes and steam cook them in a pressure cooker . We can add a pinch of turmeric powder .


When cooked  remove the skin and if you have the patience you can fork some holes throughout the potato  so that the gravy will enter the potato. Cut onion, tomato . Ina kadai add oil and when it becomes hot add cumin  seeds and ajwain.  After they splutter add onion and sauté well.


Then add tomato and all spices except  and sauté well. You can add little bit of water  to sauté . Add ginger garlic paste too.


Add curry leaves and a cup of water . Add the forked potatoes and salt.


Mix well and simmer and cook for at least 15 minutes.


Finally crush the kasoori methi between you palm  and add it to the gravy .


A quick mixing and the spicy potato gravy is ready . Suitable for roti and any Pulav.
