This is a variation on roasted potatoes that I always bring to potlucks and serve at dinner parties because everyone keeps asking for them. You can adjust the amount of spice according to the heat-level of the crowd. The oil can be adjusted to your taste too. I usually use spray oil.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 large red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon sambhar powder (I use MTR brand)
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • 4 sprays vegetable oil


  1. Cut potatoes into pieces and boil them until almost done. Drain and put on sheet pan in a single layer.
  2. Spray with oil. Sprinkle with salt and sambar powder.
  3. Turn over and repeat application of oil, salt and sambar powder.
  4. Put into 350-400 degree oven (depending on how crispy you like them) and cook for 20 minutes, turning once or twice.
