Servings 3


  • 20 to 25 baby potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 to 1 ½ teaspoons Kitchen King Masala powder
  • 2 to 3 tablespoon of oil
  • Salt
  • Coriander leaves/cilantro for garnishing


  • Wash the baby potatoes clean and cook in a pressure cooker (for 2 to 3 whistles) or in a pan of water till cooked but not mushy. Cool and peel all the potatoes.
  • In a deep saucepan, heat the oil on medium high. Once the oil gets hot, reduce the heat and stir in the chili powder, turmeric and Kitchen King Masala powder.
  • Immediately, pour in the boiled and peeled baby potatoes, add salt to taste and mix well to coat the potatoes with all the aromatic masala powders!! Increase the heat to medium high and keep stirring for about a minute.
  • Once the mixture is hot, reduce the heat to medium low, close with a lid and cook the potatoes for about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring in between (so as not to burn them). By this time, you should see the potatoes are well roasted and oil would have sepa
  • Remove from heat, add the cilantro leaves, give it a quick stir and serve hot with rice and dal or any Indian flatbread!!


  • Instead of Kitchen King Masala powder (I like the flavor of it!), you can substitute with 1 teaspoon coriander powder and ¼ teaspoon garam masala powder. You can even use sambhar powder for a south Indian flavor!
  • This amazing quick curry can be made with large potatoes too.  Just boil the potatoes till cooked, peel, cut into medium sized pieces and proceed with the same method.
