I always used to make this recipe just using the first masala. But recently I had been to a restaurant where they fried the potatoes marinated with just mint chutney. So I thought why not combine the two and make my own new version! What’s best about this recipe is its very simple, fast, looks good and tastes very good. It’s a big hit when you are having a party. I made these potatoes for my husband’s PhD party four years back of course minus the mint chutney.

When I read Meeta’s Monthly mingle “Bollywood cooking” theme, I thought what better way to showcase them! It has all the masalas that a commercial bollywood movie has:-)
Well that’s the theme right?

Potatoes – (6-7) small ones, pressure cooked and halved

For the masala:
Oil – 1 tbl spn
Red chilli powder – 1 tspn
Turmeric powder – 1 tspn
Cumin powder – 1½ tspn
Coriander powder – 1½ tspn
Garam masala – 1 tspn
Salt – 1 tspn

Pudina / Mint chutney:
Mint leaves - ½ bunch
Ginger - ½ inch piece
Green chillies - 2
Garlic – 3 flakes
Salt – 1 tspn
Roasted gram – 2 tbl spns

1. Take a bowl and mix in all the ingredients for the masala in oil.
2. Prepare the mint chutney by blending all the ingredients and add 2 tspns yoghurt to this chutney.
3. Take a flat non stick pan, add the masala and spread it on the pan.
4. Now add the potatoes one by one and toss it slowly so as to coat the potatoes with the masala on all sides.
5. Fry in medium flame for about 10 mins on each side. Keep changing sides. You should be able to see a brown crust on all sides.
6. Add the mint chutney on the potatoes directly and toss over to coat well. Fry for 2 to 3 mins.
Garnish with onion rings.

So this is my entry to Meeta's Monthly mingle
