This is a traditional bengali specialty. Poppy seeds and potatoes are definitely a match made in heaven!

These potatoes were good and worked well with the beef curry we had them with. Just one problem-there is no way raw potato could cook in the time given and the way the instructions read, so I had to assume I was supposed to use cooked cubed potatoes.
