Ingredients

  • 8-10 Baby Potatoes or 2 Large potatoes

For Green Chutney

  • 1 Cup Fresh Cilantro Leaves
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 1-2 Green Chillies
  • Fresh Ginger Piece(small)
  • 1-2 tsp Lemon Juice

For Tempering Potatoes

  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds/Jeera
  • 1-2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli Powder adjust as per your preference
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • ½-1 tsp Dry Mango Powder/Amchur
  • 1-2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1-2 tsp Tamarind Chutney optional

Instructions

  • Wash potatoes nicely and boil it in pressure cooker or in open pan. I boil potatoes in stove-top pressure cooker, till one whistle, then let the pressure go on it's own.
  • Make green chutney. For that grind all the ingredients under chutney section. Adjust green chillies level in chutney as per your heat tolerance.
  • To boil in pan, add enough water, and boil potatoes till soft and skin starts to come out. Use a tooth pick or fork to check whether the potatoes are done.

Make Green Chutney

  • Grind all the ingredients under the chutney section to a smooth paste. Add 1-2 tbsp of water if required.
  • Wash Mint and cilantro/coriander leaves very nicely. Take out the thick stem only keep the tender ones with the leaves.

Tempering Potatoes

  • In a non-stick pan r kadhai, add oil.
  • Once the oil is hot enough, add cumin seeds.
  • When seeds crackle, add boiled potatoes and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add all the powder spices under spices section, except dry mango powder.
  • Cook for 2 minutes, keep sauteing potatoes. After 2-3 minutes switch off the flame.
  • Add chutney, as required and dry mango powder and mix it well with potatoes.
  • Add tamarind chutney and mix well. This is optional, I like to add it as it gives a tangy and a bit sweet taste to potatoes.
  • Squeeze some lemon/lime juice and serve hot as starter or with fresh hot chapatis or any bread of your choice.

Notes

The potatoes used for the dish should not be over boiled, as the dish won't taste good with over soft  potatoes.
