Lasaniya Bataka || Garlicky Baby Potatoes

‘Happy Rakhi Day’ to my lovely brothers for being there for me all the time!!! :) A beautiful day to cherish a beautiful relation of brother-sister… Ideally, I should post something sweet for the day, but all my brothers are pretty much fond of hot ‘n’ spicy food… And I considered choice of each one of them while drafting this one… Definitely, they are ‘Kathiyawadi’ (Saurastra, Gujarat) food-lovers :P
~A special dish from my native – SJ version though~

10 Baby Potatoes
1 tbsp Minced Garlic
1/2 cup Chopped Onion
1 tsp Chopped Green Chillies

1/2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
Salt, to taste
2 tbsp Cooking Oil

– Boil the baby potatoes and peel them. Prick here and there… everywhere with fork :) 
– Take them in a bowl and add all the dry spices. 
– Add full cream too and toss it well. Cover with a cling wrap and keep in freeze for an hour.
