Servings: 3 People

- ¼ cup Cilantro finely chopped

Peel and chop the potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Place them in a microwave safe bowl and microwave until half way cooked (about 8 minutes). Check to see if the potatoes are fork tender but not too mushy.
Preheat the oven to 425 F. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and spread the potatoes on the tray. Add the oil and about ½ teaspoon of salt and toss the potatoes well so that the oil coats the potatoes.
Bake in the oven for about 20 – 30 minutes. Keep checking and tossing the potatoes every 10 minutes. They have to become golden brown and crispy all the way around.
Place the roasted potatoes in a large bowl and add all the rest of the ingredients. Toss and mix well and serve with the chutneys and yogurt on the side.
Serve them right away as the potato tends to lose it crispness and becomes chewy after a while.
