Baked Indian Style Potato Curry

Welcome to the 1st day of April Baking Mania :-) As I mentioned about this challenge yesterday, it’s a month long blogging marathon with the theme “Fire up the oven”. The first recipe is going to be the Baked Indian Style Potato Curry.

I want to stay on my comfort zone for the first day. So starting with one of my favorite recipe, potato curry. Potatoes – you can prepare many baked recipes with this versatile vegetable. Potato wedges, roasted potatoes with rosemary, baked fries and what not? When I tried potato wedges, I thought why can’t I do Indian style potato curry and tried it right away and it was big hit. When you are in a hurry or when you want to relax but still looking for easy homemade recipes, this is the best bet. So here is the recipe. I used red potatoes but you can go for any variety.

    I love baked potatoes, bit have never tried it with Indian spices! Like you said it’s typically been wedges with rosemary. This one’s so good!

    simply yummy! We can do the same on a grill too right? instead of a baking oven? Since bbq season is coming this will be a good one for vegetarians.

    I baked the curry couple of times in the oven and it does turn out good. Your curry looks good. I have not tried it with skin on though.

Would love hear back from you. Drop in your feedback and comments. Thanks
