Sambar Potatoes/ Potato Roast

I love baby potatoes to normal potatoes and a simple roast with rasam and rice is a super combo. So here is a simple recipe of Sambar potatoes.
Ingredients:
  • 20  baby potatoes or 6-7 small potatoes or 3 large potatoes
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp red chilly powder
  • ½ tsp sambar powder
  • a pinch of asafoetida /hing
  • 10-12 curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp  coconut oil or any cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves 

Method:
  1. Boil or steam the potatoes till they are just cooked. Peel the potatoes.
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Crackle the mustard seeds first. Then add the curry leaves and sauté for 10-12 seconds.
  3. Add the cooked and peeled potatoes and stir. Add in all the spice powders, asafoetida and salt.
  4. Stir well, so that the masala coats the potatoes well. saute for 5-6 mins on a low flame.
  5. Keep on turning at intervals to ensure even crisping and roasting of the potatoes.
  6. Garnish the roasted potatoes with coriander leaves .
  7. Serve potato roast as a side dish with sambar rice, rasam rice or dal rice.


Note:
If using large potatoes then cook them and cut them into cubes.
Do not overcook the potatoes as they can get mushy.
You can increase spice according to your choice.
