Oregano Spiced Baby Potato Fry

by - 12:48 PM

Potato is my favorite vegetable and for record, it is for most of us. Twice or thrice in a week I end up making potato fry. Its a comfort meal when accompanied with dal or sambar. I like to keep my potato fry simple and I do not prefer potato curry with onions or with seasoning and sambar powder, it gets little overboard which I can't handle. Today I made a simple baby potato fry and spiced it using Oregano and Chilly Flakes, I loved the taste to the core and so did Mr.P, who said that I can make best potato fry which is buttery in taste without actual butter in it. :) Wow... Now I can guarantee you on the taste. I saved those oregano and chilly powder packets you get when you order dominos and I have tried getting similar spice powder but to my luck couldn't find something even close it. Incase if you happen to know the recipe or the brand let me know.

So let's hit the road.

Procedure:
Wash,clean and pressure cook baby potatoes until 2 whistles. Do not cook them to a mush, they need to retain their shape. Once the pressure is released, remove their peels. Heat oil in a pan and fry these baby potatoes until golden brown in color with crispy outer texture.  Now add Salt, sugar, chilly flakes, oregano spice mix and pepper powder. Give a nice stir to ensure that all the ingredients are mixed well. Fry for 20-25 secs and switch off the flame. Serve hot.

Chef Says:
Adding Salt while frying potatoes will help potatoes fry sooner
Do not fry potatoes after adding spices, they get burnt and taste bitter. We dont like our curries bitter rite.
You can boil potatoes in a pressure cooker or boil them normally but make sure that they do not crumble when you fry them.
Instead of Oregano Spice mix you can use Keya brand Italian Seasoning. It has close taste like Dominos. I dont mind asking my pizza delivery guy for extra oregano and chilly flakes packets. So I always have reserve.
