Baby Potato Roast/Fry – Method II

After I made my Dum Aloo, I had half the bag of baby potatoes so I made my husband’s favorite baby potato roast/fry. I have already posted a baby potato roast which is made differently, please check Baby Potato Roast/fry -Method I. This method I shown below is the quickest and the easiest potato roast which can be made in 10 min and needs very little ingredients. This can be made with regular large potatoes also but cut them to medium size pieces after boiling them. Ok for now…

Here’s how to make Baby Potato Roast/Fry with step by step photos…


Baby potatoes
500 gm
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
½ tsp
Urad dal                                                           
1 tsp
Sambar powder
1 tbsp (adjust according to taste)
Rice flour
1 ½ tsp
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
As needed
1 ½ tbsp


Cook the potatoes with salt in the pressure cooker for 2 or 3 whistles. Peel the potatoes cut them to halves (if they are big) and keep them aside.

Heat oil in kadai, add mustard seeds after it splutters add the cumin seeds, urad dal, curry leaves and sauté until dal changes to golden brown color.

Now add the sambar powder, rice flour, turmeric powder, salt and mix really well for about a min.

Add the potatoes and mix well.

Roast the potatoes until the masala is well coated and roasted well.

Super delicious potato roast is ready, perfect side dish for simple sambar, rasam or curd rice.
