Spicy Potato Scramble

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Nif_H

The word "scramble" makes you think of eggs, but there are none in this! All over India, there are versions of this dish. With this amount of chilli powder, it is supposed to be very spicy! If you don't like a lot of heat or spice, start with a small amount and add more at the end. I got this from an Indian recipe website. Enjoy!

These potatoes turned out very well. I didn't find the recipe to be spicy at all. Enjoyed this with curried fried shrimp and it was a great combination. Thanks for sharing. Made for CQ 2017 for the Smok'in Chefs.
