Of all the veggies, Potatoes are considered to be very humble. They are so versatile.. you can boil them, steam them, barbecue them, mash them , saute them and even roast them. Whatever form it takes, it tastes wonderful.

There are many ingredients which go along with potatoes very well.
But, Potatoes love Rosemary 🙂

Potatoes and Rosemary are a match made in heaven.

Since the weather is getting cooler…there is nothing more comforting than Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary.




What you Need :
Baby Potatoes : 1 kilo, or use large potatoes which are quartered
Olive oil : 2 Tbsp
Garlic cloves : 4 or 5
Fresh Rosemary Sprigs : a small bunch, chopped or use 2 Tbsp dried Rosemary
Salt and Pepper : to taste

To make it interesting I even added Tadka
Oil : 1 Tbsp
Jeera : 1 tsp
Mustard seeds : 1 tsp
Garam Masala : 1 tsp

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 C.
  2. Grease a baking pan.
  3. Wash potatoes, and cut them if using large ones.
  4. Transfer into a bowl and add oilive oil, garlic cloves and rosemary, salt and pepper. Toss well to coat.
  5. In a small pan, heat oil and add jeera, mustard and allow them to splutter. Turn off heat, add garam masala.
  6. Add this mixture to potatoes and toss again.
  7. Transfer the potato mixture to the greased baking dish, arrange them in a single layer.
  8. Add extra rosemary sprigs to the pan.
  9. Roast them in the oven till tender and crisp. It takes approximately 20 to 30 mins depending on how large the potatoes are.
  10. Season with more salt and pepper if needed.
  11. Serve hot with lime wedges. We had it with Sambar Rice!


Mom’s Notes :
You can omit Garlic cloves if you want just the flavor of rosemary.
You can even omit the tadka part.
You need not peel the potatoes, but I personally prefer them peeled.

  1. You are right there’s nothing more comforting than potatoes. Whether they are boiled, mashed, baked they taste yum. I love the combination of the fresh rosemary and potatoes and that you gave it a nice tadka at the end.

    1. Hi Sri, Rosemary is an Italian herb. It should be available in some specific supermarkets like Q-mart in hyderabad. There is no telugu name for it.

    1. Hi, Rosemary is an Italian herb.. i am not sure it has a telugu name.. You can substitute it with any other indian herb like coriander or mint according to your taste.
