    SpicyDoc's Note:

    Interesting variation on basic pan fries. Vary the hot stuff to taste. Ghee is definitely preferred but use oil/butter mix if you are stuck. Found the recipe on an Indian mail order website (www.indianfoodsco.com). Prep time assumes you have some potatoes cooked and room temperature already.

      These were quite good! Made them for dinner last night. I wasn't convinced the potatoes would hold together, nor was I so sure I could get a crust to form, but everything turned out fine! Okay, some of the crust fell off the potatoes but that was okay since I like spicier stuff than my BF so I just ate that part myself:D BF liked his potatoes very much too. I did not have cumin seeds so I used cumin powder and don't know about ghee so I used oil and butter. Only used 1 jalapeno pepper, next time I would use more. Thanks very much Spicy Doc!

      These are wonderful! Co-incidentally, I had this for dinner last night. I used mustard seeds instead of cumin seeds, oil instead of ghee(I'm not a ghee fan but slowly will try to use it in my cooking instead of oil- been thinking on this this past year and learnt amazing things about ghee) and I also used 1/2 tsp. of chat masala powder. Normally, I would have used curry powder, but since I have run out of it, I decided to add some chat masala for a nice tanginess to the potatoes. This turned out very well. At the end, after this was ready to serve, I stirred in some yoghurt and then had this over rice. Yummy stuff!
