Baby potatoes are truly very lovable -- small and cute to behold and soft and sweet to taste! Here is a very aesthetic way of preparing this delicious starter, with cream, butter, cheese and Italian seasonings. The final garnish of parsley imparts a tempting aroma to the preparation, and also adds specks of green that shows up well against the potatoes. Indeed, a rich and fine treat.


Boiled baby potatoes 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) , peeled, cut into halves
Butter 1 1/2 Tablespoon
Salt To Taste
Fresh cream 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Grated processed cheese 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Dried oregano 1/2 Teaspoon
Dry red chili flakes 1 Teaspoon
Fresh ground black pepper To Taste
For garnish
Finely chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon



1. In a non-stick pan, melt butter, add the potato pieces and saute over high flame for 3 -4 minutes or until they turn brown in color, stirring continuously.

2. Season with salt, turn the flame down to medium and saute for 1 minute.

3. Add cream, cheese, chili flakes, oregano and pepper. Mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally.


4. Serve immediately garnished with parsley.
