Baby Potato Curry

I have always loved this dish especially prepared by mom. We do not get white fresh baby potatoes that often and frozen ones do not work well. Until now I was always under impression that red potatoes taste sweet and hence cannot be used to make spicy curry. Then recently when I had Dum Aloo at friend’s place using red baby potatoes and I could not wait to make this dish.

Serves 4-6
Preparation Time: 5 minute
Cooking Time: 30 Minute

1 LB baby red/white potatoes

Dry Spices
Salt, Sugar, Aamchur, Turmeric, Red Chili Powder, Garam Masala

For Tampering
2 tbsp oil
½ tsp Mustard Seeds
½ tsp Sesame Seeds
Pinch of Asafetida
2 pc Green Chili, thinly sliced
½ tsp Udad Dal
7-8 Curry Leaves

For Garnishing
Coriander Leaves

1. In a large pot, bring water to boil and cook potatoes covered until tender
2. Let potatoes cool down for a while and peel them
3. Heat oil in skillet, add all ingredients for tampering in the order mentioned and then add dry spices
4. Add potatoes, give a gentle stir and turn off the heat
5. Garnish with coriander leaves
