Potato is one of the most widely used vegetables in the world and is liked by most people.

The vegetable is quite versatile in its use and starting from a soup to a mash to the main course,  it can be used in innumerable ways.

My Sindhi Aloo Tuk, Bengali Aloo Dum and Bombay Potatoes are some of the potato recipes that are loved a by a lot of people and this potato roast is in the same list too.

This simple Masala Baby Potato Roast  is a family favourite and when I am short of green vegetables at home or wanting to eat something spicy and easy to make, this recipe comes first to my mind.

The freshly ground spice mix coats the potato and gives them a superb flavour.

Moreover, the spices such as cumin, pepper, fennel seeds and fresh coriander lend such a refreshing taste to the baby potatoes that the minute you eat them, you become its fan.

Masala Potato Roast is also a nice starter which can be served during parties or family dinners.

Sometimes, I even pack Masala Baby Potato Roast in my kiddo’s lunch and top it with some cheese, oh, my sunny boy loves that so much, I tell you!
