Baby Potato Roast My Magic Pan



  • Wash and cook the baby potatoes in a pan until the potatoes are soft yet firm. This might take 10-12 mins. Once cooked, let it cool and peel the skin.

  • I halved some of the baby potatoes as they were too big. U can use as is too. To the cooked baby potato add salt, rice flour and mix well so that all the potatoes are coated well. Leave it aside for 10 mins. Heat a pan with oil and temper with mustard and curry leaves.

Thats it!! Baby Potato Roast is ready!!

Serve hot with rice and kulambu of your choice. I served with Paruppu Rasam!!


Baby Potato Roast My Magic Pan



  1. U can pressure cook the baby potatoes for 1 or 2 whistles instead of cooking in an open pan.
  2. While adding the sambar powder to the oil, make sure to reduce the flame. Else it will get burnt and spoil the taste.
  3. U can add finely chopped onions and garlic for a different flavour too.
