baby potato fry recipe

i make this potato fry as a side dish with sambar or rasam. so this time again i thought of taking pics and adding the recipe. there are some recipes i make often, but have never posted them. somehow some of these recipes which i make often do not get added. what we do often or as a routine, always gets overlooked. so i have decided to add these everyday recipes too and you must have seen lately many such recipes being posted.

i make this potato fry with both baby potatoes or regular potatoes. i always add pearl onions in this recipe as it gives a nice taste. but you can add regular onions too.

sambar powder is also added. but if you do not have sambar powder, you can skip it completely and add some other spice powders. i have mentioned the substitutions for sambar powder in the step by step pics.

serve this baby potato fry as a side dish with rasam-rice, sambar-rice or even with chapati or pooris.
