A spicy vegetarian potato curry flavoured with cumin, coriander and tumeric. It goes very well with fresh roti bread or with plain cooked rice.
Asafoetida is a powder primarily used in Indian cooking and can be found at specialty stores.
Original review -12/11/2009 Thanks for sharing, Susmita, we were very impressed. This dish reminds me of the delicious potato dish or curry I`ve tried in my local Indian restaurant. But this was even better. I didn`t have fennel seeds and asafoetida, so I omitted them. Very delicious. ***UPDATE*** 26/04/2011 I just want to add that this dish is a staple in my house, I make it almost every two weeks. I think this is the best way to prepare potatoes so far. - 12 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Ok, but kind of bland for our tastes. - 03 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious and authentic! I like my shak super-spicy so I also added some diced green chilies I had on hand. Thanks! - 24 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
