Stir Fried Baby Potatoes with Titaphool


Phlogocanthus thyrsiflorus or (তিতা ফুল) titaphool/ (ৰঙাবাহক) rongabasak in Assamese  is a small shrub with large leaves and red coloured flowers. The red coloured flowers are edible and little bitter in taste.  It is generally used as a medicinal shrub in treating cough, stomach ache,  wounds etc. 

Titaphool

Yesterday my husband bought some titaphool together with some baby potatoes from the market. So I decided to cook this simple stir fried baby potatoes with titaphool recipe. But before that I asked for different recipes of titaphool in my facebook group (a foodies and recipe sharing group). Among different recipe suggestions from the group members, what I came to know that titaphool khar and fish intestines with titaphool bhaji are quite popular dishes.

I soaked some baby potatoes in cold water in a bowl and went to my daughter's school to bring her back to home. It took 20 minutes. After I come back from school, I soaked some titaphool flowers in cold water and with the help of a sharp knife peeled the potatoes.  It becomes easier to peel the baby potatoes as because I  soaked them in water for few minutes. But you no need to soak for 20 minutes. 5-10 minutes is enough. Now before I proceed to the method of cooking let's check the ingredients first.
