Baby Potato fry with Peanut Butter


Baby Potato - Peanut Butter Fry

I had bought Baby Potatoes with the Idea of making Dum Aloo. Due to change of plan, I needed a fry Curry for Rasam Rice, I decided to make Baby Potato Curry but with some difference. I added Peanut Butter for Marinating.
Here goes what I did to get this Baby Potato in Peanut Butter Fry.

Ingredients Needed:
1. Baby Potatoes (boiled and skin removed) 1/2 kg
2. Salt to taste
3. Oil 1 tsp

For Making Paste:
1.Besan (gram Flour ) 2 tsp
2. Rice Flour 2 tsp
3. Salt
4. Turmeric Powder
5. Garam Masala Powder 1/2 tsp
6. Peanut Butter 2 tsp
7. Water 4 tsp to 6 tsp
8. Red Chilli Powder 1 tsp (according to taste)
Mix everything with water and nicely coat these Masala paste in potatoes and keep aside for 30 minutes.

Method:
1.Heat Oil add mustard and Cumin seeds.
2. Add marinated Potatoes and fry in a medium flame till crisp.
!~! Serve Hot with Rasam Rice, Sambar Rice.
!~!

Note:
1. Prick with toothpick potatoes before marinating to enhance the masala taste.
2. Use Non-Stick utensil for best results.
