Potato Roast

Potato roast is my family’s most favourite dish and a part of our weekend lunch menu. Actually it will be very rare to find someone who will not like potato roast.

Every family will have their own recipe and way of making this dish. Today,

am sharing my recipe with you all:)


Baby potatoes – 1/2 kg

Oil – 2-3 tbsp so

Mustard – 1 tsp

Split urad dal- 11/2 tsps

Asafoetida( hing/ perungayam) – 1/4th tsp

Curry leaves – few

Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder – 1 tsp

Coriander powder- 2 tsps

Dry mango powder- 1/2 tsp


Wash the potatoes well and pressure cook for 2 whistles.

Let it cool. Peel the skin. Cut those potatoes which are big into two.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard. When it starts spluttering, add urad dal, hing and curry leaves. Sauté for few seconds and then add the baby potatoes.

Add all the masala and salt to taste, mix well. Cook on a medium flame, stirring once in a while till the potatoes becomes crisp.

Serve hot with rice and sambar/ rasam/ dal or rotis:)
