Baby Potatoes in a tangy sauce

Baby Potatoes, throo da looking glass, phenomenal tastes, praveen, tangy

A very easy recipe that doesn’t take much time at all. ย I don’t really use measurement so I leave it to your choice ๐Ÿ™‚


baby potatoes, onions, ginger, garlic, green chillies, red chillies, tamarind pulp. khus khus, fenugreek, caraway seeds, coriander power, cumin powder, aamchur, chat masala, mustard oil

Lets get crackin shall we?

  1. What I did was half boil the potatoes in salt water so they are not all squishy squashy (abt 3-4 whistles in a small cooker). Keep that aside…
  2. Make a paste of onion, garlic, ginger, green chillies, red chillies, tamarind pulp, salt, khus khus (poppy seeds), fenugreek, caraway seeds (ajwain), coriander powder, cumin powder. ย The consistency can be a little lighter than cake batter.
  3. Take a pan and pour a little oil ( Your choice of oil. I use mustard oil for that pungent smell and flavor) and start frying the pasteย till the raw smell of the ingredients are gone and it starts browning.
  4. Throw in the potato and toss them about till they are evenly coated and leave them covered for 10 mins in minimum. Make sure u keep an eye on them occasionally during this 10 mins so we don’t get charcoal. That’s not exactly nice to taste is it now? (no I haven’t tasted them either). ย 
  5. When serving squeeze some lime and top with fresh coriander leaves. ย 


Simple no?

  1. Sounds delish and easy to make! Would make a good snack too, I’m sure!
    PS: I use mustard oil in most of my veggie preparations – it’s one of the healthiest oils around.

  2. Simple indeed and looks tempting too! I am going to try this with the paste that you mention. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Now that you mention it I assume it is. Its one of the most used oils for cooking in India but their usage depends on the community. I use it in drops just for the flavor and prefer olive oil for my usual cooking

  3. My mom makes baby-potatoes in a different way! this recipe is different and sumptuous- will pass it on! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Looks delicious and I will definitely try this, for my brother just loves potatoes ๐Ÿ™‚
