Ingredients

  • 2 pounds small potatoes about 10 potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala or curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or pink salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water Only if using InstantPot Method

Instructions

InstantPot Directions:

  1. Wash and clean the potatoes and pat dry well. Using a fork, pierce the middle of each potato few times.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all seasoning together.
  3. PRESS the SAUTE mode button on the Instant Pot. When HOT appears on the display, add oil and rotate the main insert slightly so oil coats the bottom of the pot well.
  4. Add potatoes in batches and arrange in a single layer.
  5. Let them roast in the pot for 3-4 minutes. When they are browned at bottom, roll them upside down , making sure the potatoes are lightly brown and crispy on all sides. Total about 6-8 minutes.
  6. Toss in herb seasonings. Make sure it coats the potatoes well. Transfer the potatoes in steamer basket. Add water in main insert. Place the steamer basket in the main pot.
  7. Press KEEP WARM/CANCEL button. Close and lock the lid, set floating valve on SEALING. Press the manual button, cooking time to 6 minutes.
  8. Once done, use quick release by pressing CANCEL and then turning the steam floating valve on the lid to VENTING position.
  9. Open lid and transfer potatoes to serving platter. Serve hot.

Stove Top Directions :

  1. Heat oil in the pan on medium high heat. I prefer to use Cast Iron Skillet which gives it nice color to the roast. Now add potatoes and cover and cook on medium heat for 10-12 minutes. Rotate them in between so they brown up all around. Remove the lid. Toss in seasoning. Make sure it coats well. Cook for another 3 mins. Pierce the fork in the middle of the couple of potatoes. If it goes smoothly and feels tender they are done! Transfer potatoes to serving platter. Serve hot.

Oven Directions:

  1. Combine the oil and seasoning together. Toss it over washed potatoes very well. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put in preheated oven at 375 F. Check and rotate the potatoes every 15 mins so they crisp up well. Potatoes should be done in 45 mins or so. Pierce the fork in the middle of the couple of potatoes. If it goes smoothly and feels tender they are done! Transfer potatoes to serving platter. Serve hot.
