Im giving this recipe five stars because the taste was wonderful - I do think that your should amend the recipe to include how to temper the spices. We loved these potatoes, very tasty!! I crushed the cumin and mustard seeds, the pepper and chilli with a mortar and pestle. I cut the potatoes slightly smaller as I wanted them to cook quicker and roasted them in ghee. I tempered the spices by frying them lightly for a minute in a small cast-iron pan. They were a great addition to your Chicken Tandoori #124380 and Coriander Chutney #124383.
