As far as cooking is concerned, those which happen on weekends..especially Friday are "crazy". I have had lots of flop shows, resulting in n number of remakes to camouflage the blunder...but.. unlike those...this previous weekend, was ..thankfully "good" to me.
Tried out two things . One is this..for which i still not have got a proper name, so kept it to flavoured baby potaotes (the cuties of all veggies, for me) and well yes, something else too..which went all the way starting from rava dosa (flop)......to upma (floooppp).....to rava idli (bumper flop) but finally, all was well...deep fried upma balls (yeeaahhh !!! ). it came out well. Will post on that later.
To be honest, this happened to be the most quickest and simplest thing i have ever done.
All you need , are basically, just these two ingredients -
Baby potatoes (boiled and peeled)
Dry chutney powder (any )
I used curry leaf chutney powder which my Mom-in-law prepares and packs for me, while returning back from vacation. (she knows that her this d-i-law is too fond of it, and so i get a heap loads of it. ;) )
Into a wok, add in a spoon of cooking oil, about 3-4 spoonfuls(heaped) of the dry chutney powder.
I jsust eye-balled the ingredients. Had about 20 baby potatoes, so thought this much should be ok.
A half spoon of tomato puree (just added it on an instinct, so that the dry powder sticks to the potato). Mix, say about 1/2 a minute.
Throw in the potatoes and stir to coat. Check salt. Add a pich, if required.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and some dried herbs (dil).
Serve HOT ! It doesnt even require a dipping sauce. All flavours are already coated onto it.
Trust me, i was really satisfied with this and was literally waiting for my Husband to get back home to let him have a try.
Customer review : Nice !! Would be great as a "touching" for some drinks ;)
