Schezwan Baby Potatoes Recipe / Schezwan Potatoes Recipe

Yesterday when we went to our veg market, i found some baby potatoes there. Its been a while since i cooked using that. So i picked few of those and wanted to try some new recipes using baby potatoes. I also bought a big bunch of mint leaves, so i decided to make a minty veg biryani today and spicy schezwan potatoes to go with it. The combination was simply amazing, loved the fiery potato curry a lot.

I loved hot the colour of the dish turned out as well without any food colouring. I am glad that my chillies gave a nice colour to this gravy. This is pretty easy dish to make, goes well with all chinese dishes such as noodles, fried rice or naan.

Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..
