For this week of CCC I made the cute little baby potato fry,adapted from a T.V cookery show.Its a simple fry can be made in no time but the only thing it needs marination.If its marinated for a long time,the taste is more delicious and kept in the fridge for overnight.This potato fry can be served as an accompaniment or a party stater,lets move on to the recipe.....................
Preparation Time ~ 10 minutes
Cooking Time ~ 20 minutes
Serves ~ 3-4
|Red chilly powder/milagai podi||11/4 tsp|
|Thick Yogurt/thayir||2 tbs|
|Garam masala powder||1/4 tsp|
|Turmeric powder/manjal podi||1/2 tsp|
|Corn flour||2 tsp|
|Curry leaves/karivepillai||few leaves|
|Coriander leaves(chopped)||2 tbs|
Cook the potato in a boiling water till its 3/4th done,after cooling peel the skin.Using a tooth pick,prick it on several places on the potato and keep it aside.
Take a bowl and to this add the spice powders,salt,yogurt,ginger&garlic paste,mix it well.To this add the baby potatoes and mix it,so that the masala coats well with the potatoes.Keep it in the refrigerator for overnight or for at least an hour.
Now heat a pan with oil and toast the curry leaves,add the marinated potatoes and cook it in a medium flame till it becomes golden.Add the corn flour and cook it for couple of minutes and finally sprinkle the chopped coriander leaves.Put off the flame.
Serve it as an accompaniment or a starter.
- Don't cook the potatoes soft otherwise it may turned out mushy.
- Fry it in a medium flame to get roasted evenly.
