Indian Potato Sides

Grilled Indian Spiced Potatoes- Grilled Potatoes


Potatoes marinated in Indian spices and grilled to perfection…

Summer is fading away and Fall is around the corner. I am turning a bit greedy these day and grilling away as I would put my grill to rest in Winter. Enjoying grilling while it lasts! Grilled Chicken drumsticks and corn are my favorites and I often throw these onto the grill. The other day, I grilled potatoes after marinating them in Indian spices- the marinade that I use for making tandoori chicken. The grilled potatoes turned out to be delicious, a perfect side dish to serve along with Tandoori chicken or grilled steak or any other meals.
