Semolina Potatoes / Roast Semolina Potatoes

I love to try potato dishes and this particular one I found in youtube. Recipe by Anushruti I had almost forgotten about it until Sushma had posted it in a food group. I tried it and its simply awesome. I had packed it in my daughters snack box since she loves potatoes and mind me she told everyone in the building my mom has made yummy roast potato… this made me more happy and worth the effort.

 Ingredients 

10-12 Baby potatoes

3 tbsp Fine semolina/ Rawa

1 tsp Red Chilli powder

A generous pinches of hing (actual recipe doesn’t use it but using gives a nice flavor)

2 tbsp of coriander leaves

salt to taste

2 tbsp oil 
Method 
  1. Cook the Baby potatoes till we can insert a fork easily. Peel off the skin and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a non stick pan and roast the potatoes till crisp but do not burn, later add salt and keep aside for later use
  3. Heat pan on a med flame and roast the semolina for 2-3 mins till it gets golden brown.
  4. In a non stick pan heat oil, add in the hing when sizzles add red chilli powder and fry well on very low flame please take care not to burn the spice here then add 1/2 tsp coriander leaves and fry for a min then add roasted potato and fry well till all the potatoes are coated well with Red chilli powder.
  5. Now add the roasted semolina and toss them you will notice that the semolina sticks on the potatoes very well . Keep it on low flame for 3-4 mins .
  6. Toss well and serve.
 Note: 
i have used regular chilli powder if you use kashmiri chilli powder it will give you a reddish colour.
You can serve it as a starter or side dish with Dal and Rice
You can use regular potatoes also but need to cut big cubes / chunks of it. 
Happy Cooking,
