Baby Potatoes Fry - Small Potato fry - Simple Potato Recipe

My kids are not a big fan of Potatoes. So Potato fry is very rare in our house hold. but whenever I visit Little India I always tempted to buy baby potatoes. I normally add them into korma or do Palak Potatoes. I have tried this at one of my friends house. It tasted good. So I have decided to try it out. I have grinded the onion and garlic but if you are ok you can skip the grinding.

Baby potatoes - 20
Onion - 1 (chopped finely)
Garlic - 7 (Chopped finely)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon

Mustard seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
