Aloo Saunfwale / Baby Potato seasoned with fennel

Fennel Seeds have been used widely in indian cuisine, today i was browsing wikipedia to know more interesting facts abou this seed. They seem to have various medicinal properties. Including fennel in our regular diet leads to improved eyesight, reduced hypertension, increased milk flow in lactating women and also reduces cough to some extent.

It always gives an exotic flavour to the dish we prepare. I have made one such exotic flavourful dish with a combination of potatoes and fennel seeds, lets hit the recipe :)



Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time : 10 Minutes
Serves : 2

Ingredients:

Baby Potatoes - 1/4 kg - Boiled and peeled
Fennel Seeds - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Red chilli Powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander Powder - 1 teaspoon
Yoghurt 1 2 tablespoons
Oil
Salt



Method: 

Slice the baby potato in to half, heat oil in a pan, add turmeric powder, redchilli powder and the boiled potatoes, saute on low flame for 2 minutes, now add coriander powder and salt, saute for another minute. Add finely crushed fennel seeds and saute for 2 more minutes. Finally add yoghurt and cook on low flame until the potato absorbs all the yoghurt. Garnish with coriander leaves. Server hot !!

Tip: Large potatoes can also be used instead of baby potatoes


I am sending this recipe to Cooking with Fennel Seeds hosted by Priya, Kids Delight hosted by Pari and Kids Menu Event hosted by Neha.
