Baby Potatoes in Green Masala!

The other day I was talking to my Sister over the phone..and some how we came on the cooking topic!  She reminded me about this dish, which I once saw on a TV cookery programme in India..I made it about 2-3 times there, and then after that I totally forgot about it till now...Thanks to my lil sis! So I made it today and want to share the recipe with you all...

You will need:-
  • 8-10 baby potatoes
  • Oil
  • Pinch Asafoetida
  • 1 tsp Cumin and Coriander seeds
You will need for the masala:-
  • 3-4 Green Chillies
  • 1 cup fresh coriander
  • small piece of Ginger
  • 1 tbsp dry coconut
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds(khus khus)not(Cous Cous)
  • 1 tbsp Raisins
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp cumin and coriander seeds......Mix everything and make a paste with little water.  Leave a side.
Method:-
Boil potatoes in salty water about 8-9 minutes or till just tender.  Peel the skin and prick them.  Mix half masala into the potatoes and leave it for about half an hour.  Heat the oil in a pan and add cumin and coriander seeds and asafoetida , after spullter add the remaining masala and potatoes.  Mix well cook about 3-4 minutes more and ready to serve. Great as a side dish, we had it with our pasta meal.. Enjoy!
