  3. Blend it to a smooth paste along with salt, turmeric ,chilli powder and yogurt.
  4. Remove the whistle of pressure cooker and then peel the skin of potatoes and prick it with a fork and keep aside.
  5. In a non stick pan, add oil and shallow fry till the potatoes get golden brown colour and then add yogurt paste to it along with water to make a silky sauce and let it cook for 20 min. ( in general, baby potatoes are deep fried)
  6. When the gravy thickens, add garam masala and sprinkle coriander leaves and switch off the stove and serve hot with chapathis or naan.

My Tip:

If we dont have time to fry onions and spices and then blend into paste, then we can add yogurt, salt, turmeric and chilli powder, Coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala into a thick paste and then add to fried baby potatoes.
