What are Fried Baby Potatoes?

Fried Baby Potatoes are spicy and tangy baby potatoes with the crunchy exterior and soft interior. In this particular recipe, I have neither peeled nor boiled the baby potatoes. I have fried them in sufficient oil so that they get cooked and the skin gets really crunchy.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Fried Baby Potatoes Recipe

Baby potatoes are available in the market these days and I get home one pack every time I go vegetable shopping because they look so cute and needless to mention that potatoes are everyone’s favorite. I use baby potatoes to try different dum aalo recipes, starter recipes etc. The only annoying part about baby potatoes is peeling them. That is tiring and time-consuming. And in this recipe, I have not peeled the baby potatoes. I have washed them properly and fried with spices. Make sure you select baby potatoes with thin skin.

Potato lovers should try healthy veggie shots, aalu tukaalu tikki etc.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
