  • 500 g baby potatoes
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • ¾ tsp cumin seeds
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp chilli powder
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp coriander powder
  • Few curry leaves
  • ¼ tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp sesame seeds
  • Water to cook potatoes



  • Wash the potatoes well to remove the dirt and soil.
  • Pressure cook with enough water for just two whistles.
  • Once cooked peel the potatoes and keep ready. You may choose to roast potatoes with skin-on but for better spicy aloo roast it is better to peel off.

Recipe to make baby aloo roast:

  • Heat oil in a flat pan, add cumin seeds and let them crackle.
  • Keep the heat source to a low setting, add salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder and coriander powder.
  • Also, add curry leaves and saute the masala powders for few seconds in low heat.
  • Now add the cooked baby potatoes and mix well with the masalas.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and let the potatoes roast in the masalas for five to ten minutes in low heat.
  • Open lid, add garam masala and white sesame seeds and mix well.
  • Saute a few minutes and switch off.
  • Serve with sambar rice, bisibelebath and rasam rice. Goes well with pulav varieties and roti also.



1) Firstly choose the same size of baby potatoes to make this no onion no garlic spicy aloo roast. If you have big sized baby potatoes you can cut them into half.
2) While sauteing the masalas and roasting keep the heat to a low setting to avoid burning the masalas.
3) Finally, adding white sesame seeds are optional for crunchy feel and taste. You may prefer to avoid it.
