    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 ( Prep time assumes you have some potatoes cooked and room temperature already.

    1. 1
      Heat ghee in large non-stick pan until shimmering (I have the pan on full-blast for most of this recipe).

      Add cumin and stir until fragrant.
    3. 3
      Add coriander, tumeric, ground chile, green chile and ginger and stir, making a hot paste.
    4. 4
      Dump in potatoes and toss until coated on all sides (will be fairly dry).
    5. 5
      Move around into one layer and leave alone for a minute, allowing some crust to form. Turn and repeat until crusted to your liking.
    6. 6
      Remove from heat, squeeze lime juice over top,sprinkle salt and toss to blend.
    7. 7
      Pour into serving dish and garnish with cilantro.

      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!
