Boil the baby potatoes until tender, peel the potatoes skin and set aside the potatoes. Heat generous tbsps of oil in a sauce pan, when oil is medium hot add the ground masala powder to the oil and sauté for few seconds. Now add the boiled potatoes to the sauce pan and toss well in the masala powder. Reduce the heat and add red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt to the potatoes.
