Spicy Baby Potato fry

This is a very easy, simple and delicious side dish, which goes well with steaming rice. Usually we will be preparing this with regular potatoes, but with baby potatoes this looks cute and tasty too.

Believe me, you will ending up licking the bowl. This will be so tasty and it will be a hot favorite among kids.  I have added a touch of sambar powder as this will increase the taste and this I learnt from my S-I-L. Whenever she goes to her house, she used to bring homemade sambar powder and she used to add it in all the fries and it tasted heavenly.

This has become a regular dish at my house, that my kid always wants this along with rice. This is very healthy and nutritious and is worth a try.
