Roasted Baby Potatoes

I recently caught a glimpse of baby red potatoes getting roasted beautifully in a pan on Giada's show on food network. Potatoes are my favorite and that glimpse of it was enough for me to try my own version. I eyed tiny yellow baby potatoes at Trader Joe's and I jumped for them. Below is the recipe that I treated to myself I think. Though my kids and DH loved it, I kept nibbling on it throughout the process and half of it was gone by the time it made it to the dining table. :o). Try these and believe me, you won't regret it.

Prep Time: 1 min | Cooking Time: 15 min. | Serves: (Depends) - 2 to 4 :o)

Baby Potatoes - 1 lb/ 400gm
Garlic - 3 or 4 cloves, crushed
Rosemary - Fresh or Dried - 1 tsp.
Chili Powder/ Pepper - 1/2 tsp.
Olive Oil - 1 tsp.
Salt to taste

Method of Preparation:

~ Bring a pot of water to boil. Add salt and washed baby potatoes.
~ Cook on high for about 7 to 10 minutes until potatoes get JUST tender. You can make out the potatoes almost cooked when there is froth begins to appear. Switch off and close with a lid.
~ Meanwhile, in a wide roasting pan, heat olive oil.
~ Add crushed garlic, rosemary and chili powder. Roast for few seconds until the raw smell of garlic and chili powder is gone.
~ Drain the water from potatoes, gently press each potato with a spoon to slightly crush it and add it to the roasting pan.
~ Coat all the potatoes gently and continue to roast while tossing them for about 5 minutes.
~ Serve them hot as a savory snack or side for baked fish or grilled chicken.

~ You can bake these instead of boiling. Just combine all the ingredients with potatoes, pierce with fork and put it in the oven for 30 to 40 mins at 350 deg F.
