Alternately spread the potatoes on a microwave safe plate and microwave it for about 5 minutes or till it is cooked 80%.
Once cool to touch. Peel the skin and discard.
Now prick the potatoes two-three times using fork.
My baby potatoes well little big in size. So I have cut them into half. If yours is small bite size one the you can keep them whole.
Marinating the baby potatoes:
Now take the thick yogurt in a bowl.
Add all of the spices, salt, lemon juice and cashew nut powder. Mix well using spoon.
Now add the potatoes
Stir gently, so the spiced yogurt is coated and make sure that potatoes do not get break or mushy.
Now let it marinade for about 1 hour.
You can marinate it for longer period of time (4-5 hours).
Making tandoori aloo recipe:
preheat the oven at 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C for at least 10 minutes.
Line a baking sheet using aluminum foil. It will be much easy to clean up later. So I strongly recommend using foil.
Arrange the marinated potatoes on the baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake into pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes at middle shelf.
After 10 minutes remove from the oven, brush them with oil generously.
Now turn the broiler on (top rod heated only). Put the sheet back in the oven on top shelf. Broil them for 3-4 minutes.
Remove them again, flip them careful using fork (because they will be hot). Put it back to broil again for 3-4 minutes.
You will notice few charred, black spots. That is perfect.
Remove them to a serving plate.
Serve some sliced onion and green chutney on side.
