This potato roast recipe is also good when you want to prepare a side dish on short notice. Another similar South Indian potato recipe which can also be made as a side dish is Potato podimas. both these potato recipes does not require much cooking skills and can be prepared by bachelors also. You can also check spicy Mushroom roast made in North Indian style.

In this recipe I have used sambar powder to give that added zing. If you don’t have sambar powder just make the recipe with red chili powder and turmeric powder. This recipe is slightly spicy and hot, so you can reduce the spices as per your preference. This is also a no onion no garlic recipe.

You can serve potato roast as a side dish with sambar rice or rasam rice or dal rice combo.

    Thanks again. Great to hear from you.

  3. This recipe turned out very tasty. I have done this several times before, but the spice proportions given in this made it really good. I added some urad dal and chopped garlic before adding the tadka, since that is how my mom makes it.

    If i microwave cut potato pieces, will it still taste the same ?5 stars
