Potato is everybody’s favourite in my family. This baby potato fry is an easy and tasty side dish. It goes well with rice, roti, poori & even bread. There are many methods of making baby potato fry and this is one among my ways of making it.

Now to the recipe…



  • Baby Potato – 15 to 20
  • Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Amchur/Mango powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Oil – 3 tbsp
  • Mustard – 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves – a sprig

To dry roast and grind coarsely

  • Dry Chillies – 2
  • Coriander seeds – 1 tbsp
  • Jeera / Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Pepper corns – 5 to 6
  • Fennel Seeds – 1 tsp


  • Wash and prick baby potatoes with a fork. Heat a vessel with water and cook it along with salt and turmeric powder. Once cooked, cool it down and remove the skin and keep it aside. Heat a pan and dry roast the ingredients mentioned “to dry roast”  for a few mins until u get a nice aroma.

Lip-smacking Baby potato fry is ready. Serve hot.




  1. U can alternatively cook the baby potatoes in a pressure cooker for 1 whistle.
  2. Make sure to roast the potatoes and then add the coarsely ground powder, otherwise the masala will get burnt.
  3. U can add finely chopped onions too after tempering with mustard and curry leaves.
  4. U can use normal potatoes too.
