Baby Potato Fry | Potato Fry with Onion Paste

Baby potatoes are kids favorite. Whenever I go for shopping I used to search for this baby potatoes. My daughter loves it. I used to buy very tiny potatoes; I make varieties with the baby potatoes. My mom makes best fries with the tiny potatoes.But this recipe is bit different , When I made this I was little bit worried whether my kid will like this or not. But she loved it and it was a great success for me.
           I make usual potato fries with red chilli powder and salt will be a hit always. But with little onion paste and chili paste, it sounds different and it is a remarkable taste , which will last long. Just give it a try.  It goes well with sambar and rasam rice or a best combo with chapattis also. Kids Favorite recipe.

Ingredients
Baby potatoes 300 gms
Onion and green chili paste – 2 ½ tsp (grind together – 1 onion and 1 green chili)
Red chili powder – 1 ½ - 2 tsp (according to taste)

Pressures cook the baby potatoes. Heat oil in a pan, Splutter mustard seeds and add onion paste. Fry well till the oil is separated. 
Add turmeric and chili powder in oil fry and add the potatoes. Add salt. Mix well. Fry it in sim, till the potatoes become crisp. It will take longer time to become crisp.  But taste matters for all of us.  Enjoy the baby potato fry with chapattis or rice.
