Coriander baby potatoes – quick snack / side, is my favourite of all the recipes, that I made during this week. Such a quick & easy recipe to make, with just few basic ingredients. 

Actually, during the weekdays, I made this as an evening snack for my kids. I just started making without any proper recipe in my mind. Abruptly, found few baby potatoes in the basket and proceeded with whatever I felt like adding to make the snack tastier. Chose coriander as the main ingredient for the love I have for it. And here came this below recipe.

“Amma (Mom)! I want this for school lunch tomorrow, please Amma, pleeeease…”, this was my son’s request (rather demand), after eating the snack!! And my 2 daughters joined their voice too!! 🙂 Happy kids & Happy Mommy!!
