Baby Potato Stir Fry (Khosa samet kucho aloo bhaja)

If I ask a question, how many people like potatoes out there? I know I will get positive answers from all of you..But I am sure everyone might not like the same dish of potatoes. Some may like potato wedges, some people love potato chips, others may like them in curry or in bondas. Good news for potato lovers because I am going to share another recipe of potato. Today's recipe is Baby Potato Stir Fry which I have learnt from my Nani.

Baby Potato Stir Fry (Khosa samet kucho aloo bhaja)


Baby Potato - 250 gm
Turmeric Powder
Dry red chilli - 2
Mustard oil - 2 table spoon


You must be wondering by seeing the ingredients list. Don't worry, we can make a chatpata dish with these few basic ingredients.  Do not peel the skin of the baby potatoes instead cut them into halves. Wash them and boil them in a pressure cooker upto two whistle. Once the pressure is released take out the potatoes and drain the water. Keep them in a basket for 30 mins to one hour. Now heat oil in a pan and put 2 dry red chilli for seasoning. I fyou want can also add cumin seeds as seasoner along with red chilli. I avoided cumin seeds. Then out the boil potatoes and start frying them on medium to high flame. Add turmeric powder and salt. Keep on frying them until the skins of the potatoes starts shrinking and color changes to golden brown. Switch off the gas and serve them with puffed rice, roti or rice.This can be served as starter too.  And the best part of eating baby potato stir fry is, peeling the skin while eating.
