Potatoes remind me of those Sunday lunches in India with family. Today I made radish Sambar and potato fries for lunch. For a change I made these differently and they turned out super yummy and fun for kids to pop in.

IMG_7716I simply heated some oil and added some mustard seeds and turmeric, chili, coriander, and amchoor powder. Once fried add in the baby potatoes and cover and cook. Skin turns crispy and till cooked. Once done slightly crush them with a fork and cook them  for fe mins to get the spices inside the potatoes.IMG_7703
