Potato fry recipes are very common and cooked in most vegetarian families however this one is something which uses tomato ketchup as one of a ingredient and so the taste is also awesome.. I have been thinking to present a tasty and easy vegetarian recipe. It’s a very simple and tasty side dish which can be served rich with rice or any dish for your lunch. The idea of making baby potatoes came into my mind when I saw them after a very long time in a super market. Though it doesn’t take much to time to make, however the longer time for making this would be baking the potatoes. Just to be very sure if your potatoes are cooked well, prick a fork at the center and you could find it.

I am not that fond of potatoes but my bf does. He likes potatoes very much in what ever the way I make. I just loved having it with plain curd rice or lemon rice. It would be a perfect choice when you are running out of time but then you cannot compromise on having something good as well. Before you start making, cook the potatoes at microwave as I did for about 8-10 minutes, make sure it shouldn’t be so very mushy or very solid kind. I am sure you may get tempted with the pictures, rewrite your shopping list adding baby potatoes to it :) 


  • Baby Potatoes (with or without skin)- 8-10 Nos
  • Kasuri Methi- 1 Tspn
  • Garlic- 5 Pods (sliced as thin)
  • Ginger Garlic Paste- 1 Tspn
  • Chili Powder- 1 Tspn
  • Turmeric Powder- ¼ Tspn
  • Coriander powder- 1 Tspn
  • Garam Masala- 1 Tspn
  • Salt- To Taste
  • Mustard Seeds- 1 Tspn
  • Urud Dal- ½ Tspn
  • Curry Leaves- few
  • Tomato Ketchup- 1 Tspn
  • Lemon- Half


  • Cook the potatoes in the microwave for about 10 minutes and keep aside.
  • In a separate pan, pour oil when it becomes hot add the mustard seeds, curry leaves, kasuri methi and Urud dal and ginger garlic paste and sauté for a minute
  • Add all the powders in the ingredients with salt and again sauté for few minutes until the raw smell goes from it.
  • Add the potatoes and sauté again for few minutes.
  • Add half cup of water and cook it covered for about 5 minutes.
  • After it cooked well and the water is evaporated, add the tomato ketchup and give a quick stir.
  • Set off the flame and squeeze the lemon to it and serve hot.

"Removing the skin from it, however its not mandatory. If you still like to remove then peel the skin roughly with a knife.

After all the powders are added make sure its not fully dried up as it may not taste good, hence add more oil at that time if its dry.

Since the potatoes are already cooked in microwave, cook carefully as it shouldn’t get mushy.

You can add a chicken masala to it but its optional which you a extra taste to the recipe."
