These small baby potatoes are a sweeter variety than normal ones
and come with a creamy off white interior. Baby potato is a starchy vegetable
that adds thickness to recipes and blends well with other vegetables.
Storage and Uses
Potatoes should always be stored in a cool, dark and dry place
that is preferably in your visibility. But if not attended to for a long time
these potatoes will begin to sprout due to preferable envIronment conditions
and end up loosing nutritional value.
Refrigeration adversely affects the flavour of potatoes, therefore it is best to store them in paper bags. Remember, plastic bags promote moisture and speed decay process.
Baby potatoes have almost all the uses of a normal potato but one advantage is that they can be peeled and put as a whole without the burden of cutting due to their small size. Can be roasted, boiled, stir fried, sauted and put in various chilled salads, pastas and curries like dum aaloo.
Baby potatoes are a rich source of dietary fibres, potassium, vitamin C and B-6. They reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
