Baby potatoes are truly very lovable – small and cute to behold and soft and sweet to taste! here is a very aesthetic way of preparing this delicious starter, with cream, butter, cheese and italian seasonings. The final garnish of parsley imparts a tempting aroma to the preparation, and also adds specks of green that shows up well against the potatoes. Indeed, a rich and fine treat.

Like Italian Style Baby Potatoes

  1. Like Italian Style Baby Potatoes. Baby potatoes are a marvelous ingredient. They are bland in nature and can easily take up different flavours to create a delightful dish. While in Indian cuisine, they are mostly used to make subzi or chaat recipes, when we talk about international cuisine they are widely used to make salads, appetizer and side-dish recipes. Below are some unique recipes you can make using baby potatoes:

To make Italian style baby potatoes

  1. To make the Italian style baby potatoes, wash approx. 2 cups of baby potatoes under running water. Pour enough water in a pressure cooker and pressure cook for 3 whistles.  Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  2. Drain potatoes and let them cool completely.
  3. Peel all the baby potatoes and discard the skin. You can keep the skin intact if you want.
  4. Cut the baby potatoes into halves vertically using a sharp knife and keep aside.
  5. For tossing the baby potatoes Italian style, heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan. Also, you can use olive oil as a substitute but, butter enhances the overall flavour.
  6. Add the potatoes and mix well. You can add garlic and fresh herbs too if you like.
  7. Sauté on a high flame for 3 to 4 minutes or till the potatoes turn brown in colour, while stirring continuously. If the pan is big enough, the potatoes can spread evenly in a single layer to have an even brown crust or you will have to keep tossing as mentioned.
  8. Add the salt.
  9. Sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  10. Add the cream. The cream blends with the chees to provide a rich texture to the baby potatoes.
  11. Add the cheese. Parmesan cheese is a great substitute to processed cheese while making the Italian potatoes.
  12. Add the chilli flakes. Paprika, cayenne pepper can also be used if you do not have chilli flakes.
  13. Add the oregano. If you have Italian dried seasonings, then you can toss in some to perk up the taste of Italian style potatoes.
  14. Add the pepper. Always use freshly ground best quality pepper to get the best flavors out of a dish.
  15. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  16. Serve the Italian style baby potatoes immediately garnished with parsley.

Potatoeess!! Yumm.. This italian starter is always a hit at my home parties.. I love the creamyness, the crunch from the sauted potatoes in butter.. I add a little garlic or garlic power as well to this.. The addition of green parsley enhances the flavour..Just too good..
