Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Rosemary Potatoes

Who doesn’t love the humble vegetable potato and I absolutely adore it in its baby form (though I try hard very very hard to stay away from it). So when I chanced upon this while some online browsing, I knew this was a dish which had to be made ASAP 🙂 and I was glad I did make it because it was a absolutely yummmm

We had it with hot phulkas (I skipped them to balance on carbs), salad and a raita for a full satisfying meal

What I used

  • Baby Potatoes – about 15
  • Spring Onions – finely chopped about 10
  • Fresh Rosemary – a handful chopped
  • Dried Rosemary – 1/2 tsp
  • Olive Oil – 1tbsp
  • Cherry Tomatoes – about 15
  • Salt – to tastes
  • Chilli Powder – to taste

How I made it

  • Wash and scrub the potatoes well, keep the skin (Tip : I keep a fresh separate scrotch bite to clean my potatoes, it works like magic)
  • Boil them till 3/4 till done
  • Heat olive oil in a pan and add potatoes, toss on high heat till they turn golden brown in color and are fully cooked.
  • Add salt, fresh and dry rosemary and stir fry for another 2 minutes
  • Add cherry tomatoes (I cut them into 2), chilli powder and spring onions. Fry for 2-3 minutes
  • Serve hot

It was such a hit at home that I had to make it again after a week, the next time I made it I didn’t have fresh rosemary so I used a little more of dried and that too worked.

I am posting a recipe after so long, it feels good… It was almost like I have forgotten Friday Feast 😉

So whats cooking in your kitchen?

    This looks lovely. Gotta try it out sometime. But is rosemary available in India? Have never used it in cooking. 😦 Can it be substituted with something else?

    In my kitchen, Ari Nellikai pickle is cooking:
