Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes until they are nearly fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes; drain, then cut in half once they are cool enough to touch.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; once the oil begins to shimmer add the cumin and coriander seeds and cook until they begin to sizzle, 30 seconds.
  3. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds; stir in the potatoes and let brown a minute or two.
  4. Stir in the bell peppers, turmeric, cayenne (if using), and salt; cook 2 minutes and stir to distribute the spices; cover the skillet and cook 5 minutes (to steam the peppers a bit).
  5. Uncover and remove the pan from the heat; squeeze the lemon juice and toss.
  6. Garnish with peanuts and cilantro.

Oh my goodness, big smile here! I used gold baby potatoes and two peppers (green and yellow) which is what I had on hand. Loved, loved, loved the seasoning's used here. Delicious with salmon and lemon garlic rice last night. :D
