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!
