Pan fried baby potatoes with cherry tomatoes and onions


I have always loved cherry tomatoes and when I came across baby potatoes and small onions in my grocery store, I could not resist buying all the three vegetables.  I decided to combine all three and make a delicious medley.  Golden pan fried potatoes with caramelized onions and tomatoes turned out to be rather delicious!  Caramelized onions and tomatoes added an amazing flavor to the potatoes. Absolutely lip smacking! 

What you need:

Baby potatoes 250 gm

Small onions peeled 16-20

Cherry tomatoes 15-20

Oil 5 tbsp

Sea salt to taste

Black peppercorn crushed 1/2 tsp

Basil leaves 15-20

Brown sugar 1 1/2 tsp

Red chilli crushed 1/2 tsp

vinegar 4tsp

Onion seeds (kalonji) 1/4 tsp

How to make:

  1.  Scrub potatoes well.  Put in a microwaveable dish(or you can parboil them in water on the stove) with a little water.  Cover and cook in microwave for 5 minutes.  
  2. Heat 3 tbsp oil in a pan and add the potatoes.  Sprinkle sea salt over them and add half the crushed peppercorns.  Toss well and cover and cook.

4.  Finely chop basil leaves.  Add brown sugar, crushed red chillies, vinegar to the onion-tomato pan.  Toss well and cover and cook.


5.  Add the onion seeds and some crushed peppercorn to the potatoes and stir well.

To serve:  Layer the potatoes in a serving dish and place the onion-tomatoes on top.  Serve hot with chapatis or as a side to grilled fish or chicken.
