My recipe this week is Baby Potatoes in Spicy Gravy. This is one of my favourite recipes among the other ones I usually make with baby potatoes.Unlike buying the prepacked bags,this weekend I got a chance to select and pick up the freshest of fresh ones when I visited the local farmers market .

recipe source: my collection

serves: 3-4 people
prep’time: 25-30 mins

To make this recipe I used
15 baby potatoes- boiled in in salted water

1large onion
1 large tomato
1 big flake of garlic
1 tsp red chillipowder
1 big pinch kasoori methi leaves
1 tsp dhaniya powder
1/4th tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp sugar
oil 1 tbsp
salt as required
First,boil the potatoes in salted water. Meanwhile,finely chop the onions and tomatoes. Scrape and grate ginger and garlic.Take a wide pan and heat a tbsp oil. Now,add a tsp of cumin seeds/jeera. When the color of cumin seeds starts changing add onions and saute them till transperent. Add ginger,garlic paste and saute. Add tomatoes,saute till oil seperates. Now,add kasoori methi,dhaniya powder,salt,sugar,red chilli powder and add a small cup of water.Bring the gravy to boiling point. Peel and prick the boiled baby potatoes with a fork and add them to the gravy.Let it cook for about 7-8 mins.Now,add 1/4 cup of fresh cream or yogurt if desired and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
note:alternatively,you can either deep fry the potatoes or fry them in shallow oil after boiling.The quantity of sugar I used in this recipe does not make the recipe sweet.If you want you the curry to be sweet you can add more sugar or grated mawa/khova.
