Sambar Baked Potatoes

My husband is a potato lover and he loves baked potatoes. I like making indian style potato dish something like bombay potatoes. There are numerous version of this dish but my favourite has always been the one with chopped tomatoes and with a bit of tamarind juice. I love anything that is of slightly sourish. I will share the recipe one of these days when I decide to make it .. hehe

This version is a bit different, I baked it instead of frying it and I used amchur powder for that sourness. You can adjust the spiciness by adding more chilli powder. But generally it is up to you how much more or less of the ingredients you want to add to the potatoes.


This is just an estimation, add more or less to suit your taste.

4 medium potatoes (with jacket), washed thoroughly and cut into chunks
1/2 tbsp sambar/vegetable curry powder
1/2 tsp heapful tumeric powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp amchur (mango powder)
1 tsp sweet paprika or chilli powder for spiciness
pinch of salt
2-3 tbsp olive oil coriander leaves, chopped

1. Parboiled potato pieces until half cooked, drained and shake them abit to make them fluff
2. Mix all the other ingredients except coriander leaves to the potatoes and mix them until well incorporated
3. Line a baking pan with aluminium and arrange the potatoes onto the pan
4. Bake the potatoes in a preheated oven of about 200C for 30mins
5. Once crispy, add chopped coriander and mix well
6. Serve hot with rice or flat bread
