These spicy, stir fried baby potatoes have become a firm favourite with my friends and family.

The potatoes can form part of an Indian banquet, served with salad and grilled chicken or in a wrap with some cooling raita and fresh salad.

I like to dry fry the fennel seeds, before I add the oil as this gives an additional roasted hit, just a little warmth in the pan is good, be careful not to burn them.

My style of cooking is very traditional with a healthier twist, so I use less oils and this can mean the pan gets too hot, resulting in a burnt finished dish, so always add a splash of water when the pan needs it, this reduces the heat to save spices burning and gives you a natural yummy sauce.
