Kali Mirch, Til aur Moongphali Aloo - Baby potatoes tossed in Black Pepper, Sesame seeds and Peanuts #Vratkakhana #Faralifood #potatoes

These baby potato dish is just not another potato recipe what you make everyday, but has a special value in your plate, these are flavourful, delicious and exceptional. Boiled baby potatoes, sautéed in the most amazing flavoured TADKA with minimum spices!

For this dish, tadka is flavoured with black pepper, curry leaves, roasted peanuts , sesame seeds and green chillies. Although I have added black pepper twice ( double the amount ) dish is not over powering with the pungent spiciness but actually enhances all the flavours !

Sesame seeds and Peanuts adds beautiful crunch and provides little balance as both ingredients are full of minerals and protein and makes a smashing combination. Although generally we peel the skin of the potatoes, with this recipe I have always used potatoes with the skin.

These lip smacking and finger licking baby potatoes are ideal for the Vrat or Upwas as they are cooked without any onion or garlic.

These yummy and irresistible potatoes can be enjoyed with mild plain Yogurt and Rajgiro Panch Ratna Siro/Halwa ( Amaranth flour pudding )

  • 1 tsp. slightly pounded black pepper 
  • 3 tbsp. sesame seeds
