Baby Potato Fry

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.....................

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.
