A great side dish, can be a vegetarian main dish also. Has been served at tea time in India as a snack, too! Oil-free, more low-fat cooking with high flavor! :)

  • Heat cumin seeds and mustard seed in hot dry skillet over high heat, swirling pan, until seeds start to pop.
  • Reduce heat to medium; add onions, chilies, and add a small amount of water; cook until onion is tender, adding more water as necessary to prevent sticking.
  • Add potatoes, ground cumin, coriander, turmeric, salt (to taste), and cayenne pepper, stirring to mix well.
  • Add 2/3 cup water, cover, reduce heat and cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spices are absorbed and potatoes are tender.
  • Add a small amount of water at a time if all liquid evaporates.
  • Fold in cilantro just before serving.

    I agree with the reviewers who said this recipe has authentic flavors, the spicing is very similar to that used by various friends I have had from south asian countries. I really loved the taste of the cumin seed (which tasted even better after settling for awhile and eating the leftovers). I think I would like this even more if I substituted some of the potato for sweet potato or carrot and added some peas or green beans. The only slight modifications I made was to use two chopped green chillies and to fry the seeds then the onion and chilies in a little bit of olive oil before adding the potatoes, spices and water. Thank you for this recipe.
