Now let’s see how to make this Spicy Potato Fry
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20 mins
Serves : 2 Persons


Baby Potato – 17 nos

For Tempering 

Oil – 1 Tbsp
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Small onions/Shallots – 1/2 cup(roughly sliced)
Curry leaves – 1 sprig

For Seasoning

Sambar Powder – 1 tbsp
Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder – 1 tsp
Salt to taste


1. Wash and take the baby potatoes. Add them to a pressure cooker and cook for about 2 Whistles. I have made small cuts in the potato before cooking. It will help to remove the skin easily after cooking it. Peel off the skin from it and keep them aside.
2.Heat oil in a Pan/Kadai. Then add mustard seeds.Once they start to crackle, add the sliced small onions/shallots. Saute them well in oil. When they turn light golden add the curry leaves and cooked Baby potatoes. Saute them all well together.
3. Add Kashmiri Chilli powder, Sambar powder. Drizzle some oil so the potatoes get coated well with the masala and get fried outside. Add salt as required.
Serve hot with Rice or Roti.
