Hi nithya

Choose 1 kg round waxy baby potatoes. Pressure cook them for 2-3 whistles till soft. Peel off the skin. Add aboout 4-5 tbsp of oil (it is ok to be liberal with oil) in a kadai/pan. Add mustard and urad dal. When it gets golden,add 1/2 tsp turmeric, add the cooked potatoes slightly stir it till mustard is evenly coated.
After 2-3 min, add enough salt, and chilli powder to suit yr taste. Keep on med flame and allow it to roast for a few more min.
Reduce the flame, keep in low, and close the kadai and roat till golden brown.Do not stir too much. Be careful not to break the potatoes.
Be patient as it will take some time to get a perfect golden crust on each potato

thanks for the visit dear...
