Easy to prepare--spicy but not too hot. It is a great accompaniment from anything from buffets to barbecues.

Excellent recipe. I made a double batch and made a few adjustments. Used 2 pounds of potatoes, a double mix of spices but only two onions. Also added a couple of tablespoons of chopped coriander (cilantro) stems at the very end. One of our guests doesn't cope well with chilli, so I used paprika instead. I look forward to making these with the heat, but they were completely delicious without it. Thanks so much for posting.

Loved these potatoes - just the right amount of flavor. Served them alongside Indonesian Chicken skewers and they were absolutely delicious. You are correct, these potatoes are good warm and also at room temperature. I'm quite sure they will make great leftovers as well. Will definitely make these wonderful potatoes again.
