Onion & Baby Potato Roast

I have seen rarely peoples especially Indians says 'no' to super spicy potato roast with loads of onions, especially this kind of onion potato roast will have their important place in our lunch during festivals. I love this spicy onion potato roast with hot steaming rice topped with ghee and sambhar. Eventhough i have varieties of potato roast, this baby potato and onion roast was somewat different from them, coz of the spice powder is specially prepared for it.

Usually i'll go for chilly powder, fennel powder and coriander powder with cushed garlic cloves, for making this onion baby potato roast, i prepared myself a spice powder with few spices instead of using already prepared spice powder. Since i choosed cooking with onions for this week's blogging marathon, i used red onions for making this fingerlicking potato roast,check out the other marathoners running this 20th edition of blogging marathon here.


1/2kg Baby potatoes
3nos Onions (large & chopped)
4nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
Few curryleaves
1tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
Oil

Roast & grind:
4nos Dry red chillies
10nos Black peppers
1tsp Fennel seeds
2tbsp Coriander seeds
1/2tsp Flax seeds
2tbsp Rolled oats
1inch Cinnamon stick

Dry roast all the spices given under the list 'roast and grind' one by one, take everything in a mixie jar and grind as fine powder, keep aside.

Meanwhile cook the baby potatoes in water with salt until they get well cooked, peel the skin and keep aside.

Heat enough oil, fry the cumin seed, crushed garlic cloves until a nice aroma comes from, add immediately the chopped onions,curry leaves, saute until the onions turns transculent.

Now add the already cooked potatoes,turmeric powder and salt, cook everything in medium flame for few minutes.

Finally add the grounded spice powder as per need, cook the potatoes in simmer until they gets well coated with the spice powder and oil gets separates.

Serve hot with rice and your favourite dal.

  25. Hi Priya! How many serving can this recipe serve? :) I will try it this weekend for our family gathering. I'm sure they'll love this. But I'll have to add more turmeric/curcumin powder as most of them love spicy foods. Thanks for sharing this! :)
