Serves: 4 servings
  • Baby potatoes – 500 gms
  • Olive oil – 4 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
  • Dried whole red chili – 4
  • Cumin seeds – ½ tsp
  • Coriander seeds – 1 tbsp
  • Ginger paste – ½ tsp
  • Garlic paste – ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
  • Garam masala – ½ tsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp
  • Fresh cilantro – ½ cup, chopped
  • Lemon – 1, cut into wedges
  1. Preheat the oven at 200 C (400 F). Coat the roasting tin well with olive well.
  2. Wash and dry the potatoes well. Cut them into halves. You don’t need to peel them!
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the cut potatoes and toss them to give a good mix. Set aside.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in a small frying pan and add the mustard seeds, dried whole red chili, coriander seeds, cumin seeds and stir for few seconds until fragrant.
  5. Next add the ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, garam masala and salt. Sauté the spices for about 1 minute.
  6. Pour this spice mix over the potatoes and toss them really well so that all pieces are coated thoroughly with the spicy oil. Arrange potatoes in a single layer in the prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes until they are tender and brown. Keep checking after every 10 minutes so that the potatoes do not get burned.
  8. Once done, sprinkle the chopped cilantro and drizzle with lime juice.
  9. Serve hot with some extra lime wedges.
