Awesome ways to cook baby potatoes

Baby potatoes are well, babies! They are potatoes that are removed from the soil before they are mature, and like babies are sweet-natured, baby potatoes are sweeter than the full-grown potatoes too. That sounds like an awful analogy but it does serve the purpose of explaining what baby potatoes are.

Small and pretty, the baby potatoes have a white inside covered by a light brown peel that is very thin. They can be had peeled or unpeeled. While the peeled ones are more on the sweetish side, the unpeeled one has a nice nutty tinge to it. The slightly sweetish taste of baby potatoes combines beautifully with most herbs and seasonings making it a very popular ingredient, especially for curries and starters.

Baby potatoes are available commonly all over the world, and can be used in both Indian and continental dishes. You can make much more than just curries and starters with it, as you are just about to discover.
