Whenever I learn a new dish made of potato kids want me to try it out immediately and it happenned with this Ginger Garlic Potato recipe too. When I was describing the recipe to my kids they said mom please try it out and send it to school tomorrow. (Why to school specifically, I will be sending it in a box alone and they will not have the guilt that they were not able to complete it.) But they had liked it so much they wanted me to do it again. One of the few recipes that the kids loved after tweaking it a bit from the original recipe. 

I have added the quantity that I have used but you can adjust it as and how you like it. This can be made both with baby potato and also equally cut regular potatoes. This makes a great side dish for rasam rice or vathakuzhambu rice or pulav or chappathi or roti.




Ingredients:
Baby Potato - 1 Kg
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Garlic - 8 pods
Mint leaves - 1/4 cup
Jeera - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Sambar Powder - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

Method:
Pressure cook and peel the potatoes. Make a paste of mint leaves and jeera.  In a pan add oil and when it gets hot add chopped ginger and garlic and saute a while add the potatoes and mix well. Add the mint jeera paste and mix well so that all the potatoes get coated well. Add the salt and sambar powder and mix thoroughly. Reduce the flame and cook till all the potatoes are coated with all the ingredients added.
