  • Cook baby potatoes ( with skin) in cooker or in hot water till they are cooked. Pl take care not to overcook the potatoes.
  • Once cooked, peel the skin and make small holes with a fork.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add jeera seeds to it. Once they crackle, add all the dry masala powders.
  • Sauté them well till the raw flavour goes off. Then add the baby potatoes and give it a nice stir. You may add salt at this stage
  • Close it with a lid and allow it to cook on low flame for about a minute. One done, switch off the flame and add lime juice and garnish with dry fenugreek and coriander leaves
