This indian inspired dish is a nice side dish for any meal. I've been using it for a few years and love it. It can be found in a very nice cook book called "The complete book of Indian Cooking" by Veronica Sperling and Christine McFadden -if you come across this book I recommend you buy it! Grinding the fresh spices in this recipe captures all the flavour before it has a chance to dry out but I'm sure that you could try your favorite curry powder with success if you don't have the called for supplies.
- 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
- 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
- 1⁄3 cup salted butter
- 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 dried red chilies
- 1 1⁄2 lbs baby new potatoes
- Grind the cumin and coriander seeds together with a mortar and pestle (or spice grinder).
- Melt the butter gently in a roasting pan and add the tumeric, mustrad seeds, garlic and chillies.
- Add the ground cumin/coriander mix.
- Stir well to combine evenly.
- Place in a preheated oven, 400 F (200 C) for 5 minutes.
- Remove the roasting pan from the oven and add the potatoes.
- Stir well so that butter and spices coat the potatoes completely.
- Put back in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Stir occasionally to keep the potatoes evenly coated.
- Test the potatoes with a skewer- if they drop off the end of the skewer when lifted, they are done.
- Serve immediately.
