Potatoes are partly boiled then fried with a heady mix of spices, chillies and ginger. These potatoes go well with any Indian dish or are great on their own.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1½ tablespoons ghee or butter
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 green chillies, chopped
  • 1 (2cm) piece fresh ginger root, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander, ground
  • 1 teaspoon amchoor (dried mango powder), optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander, chopped

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Place the potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 10 minutes, until tender. Drain and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Heat the ghee in a large frypan over medium heat. Lightly toast the cumin seeds, mix in the green chillies and ginger. Season with chili powder and coriander. Stir in the potatoes, and cook about 5 minutes. Add the amchoor and salt, and continue cooking about 15 minutes. Garnish with the coriander to serve.
