When mustard seeds start crackle,add green chili n curry leaves.
Then add chopped onion with a pinch of salt so that it is cooked faster.
When onion turns into little golden olour,add turmeric powder n sauté little.
Then add boiled baby potatoes and let it cook in low flame till it turns into crispy and golden colour.
Then add chettinad masala and sauté this so that it is well coated with all baby potatoes and sauté for some time.
Add chopped coriander leaves n serve hot…
You can insert a tooth pick in eachbaby potato and serve a s a party starter.
You can make the chettinad powder in large quantity and store…it remains fresh for long time.
Dry roast the ingredients for chettinad masala…and grind to a coarse powder.

I have used steel pan here as it is harmless n healthy…comparing to fry pans.
Try to use thick steel pan…otherwise the masla will get burnt.
