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.

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.

1. Prick with toothpick potatoes before marinating to enhance the masala taste.
