In this recipe, The gravy is usual punjabi style onion-tomato gravy. But the addition of yogurt adds little tang to it. All the spice powders added are basic and it is available in any Indian household

Here in USA, I rarely get my hands on these small potatoes. But whenever I buy a bag of it, I make either dum aloo or lasaniya batata. But this time I forced myself to make something else. So I made this baby potato curry and tandoori aloo.

I have added little extra red chili powder, because I like any potato dish on little spicy side. But you can adjust it as per you taste.

You can use regular potatoes instead. Boil the potatoes, once cooled, peel them. And then chop into big chunks.
