  • 2 green chillies
  • 2 red chillies
  • 1/4 tsp cummin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp urad dal/black gram without skin (optional)

. Make a fine paste of cilantro n green chillies with an addition of 1 tbsp water and keep aside

Heat oil in a pan ,add urad dal,cummin seeds,mustard seeds and stir nicely .Once mustard seeds splutters add hing ,red chillies and fry for a 30 sec then add boiled potatos,turmeric and fry till it become golden brown ,at this point add cilantro paste,salt and mix properly
Cover the pan and reduce the flame to low , stir occasionally ,fry for 5 min and let the cilantro paste  properly coat the potatoes .  Add 1 tsp of lime juice , stir well and switch off the flame.Serve with hot rice or rotis .

In place of baby potatoes one can use normal potatoes too.Boil the potatoes ,peel them and cut them into long cubes and use.

If you are in a rush ,then simply peel and cut them into chunks ,fry them and once potato soft add the paste and cook.

You can add few garlic pods while making cilantro paste ,if you love garlic flavor in your food.

In place of coriander u can use methi/fenugreek leaves too,it will also taste awesome.

Looks so nice Sathya. I love potatoes and specially baby potatoes are an amazing one bite side dish! Cilantro leaves and chillies have to taste amazing.
