      I made this dish tonight - my SO found this to be one of the best potato dishes he's ever had! We cook and eat lots of Indian food, so I take that as quite a compliment! Great recipe!

      My neighbour prepared this to accompany an Indian potluck dinner a while back. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it's unique flavour! Tonight I'm hosting a similar affair and the same neighbour is preparing this dish again. We all loved the method of 'frying' the potatoes rather than simmering them in liquid. Probably not great for the waist line but hey, neither are the rest of the dishes! Fenugreek adds that special flavour. Thanks so much for posting!

      I love Indian spicy potatoes and as this recipe was different from my usual one, I just had to try it. I'm not surprised this is one of Charishma's favourites, it's a great tasting dish. Easy to make and excellent instructions too. I had to use different chillis to those specified, but otherwise did everything the same. I noticed that my DH (who isn't too keen on Indian cuisine) had a clean plate at the end of the meal, so I know I'll be using this recipe again (hooray)!
