Sambar Potato Roast / Roasted Potatoes flavoured with Sambar Powder

Hai guys, wish you a great monday. Hope everyone had a great weekend. And for everyone who celebrated tamil new year, how did the day went for you. Did you had fun. I had a lots of it, we started our day with a visit to our favorite temple and made lots of sweet poha. It was amazing. Then we watched our favorite movies and shows on TV..Nothing can get better than this right.

Now for todays recipe, I came across this recipe through a cooking show, guess what after 5 mins, i was in the kitchen making it. That is because of its simplicity i wanted to try it immediately. Sambar Potato Roast, the name sounds kind of weird but not the taste. Imagine the flavour of sambar infused into the crispy potatoes. How could that go bad..

We had this rasam rice and it was divine. But it will equally taste great with plain rice and dal, or curd rice too. I can assure you that.So try it and let me know how it turned for you..
