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.
Great side dish.......I added turmeric and extra green chillies - 22 Apr 2012
Thanks for taking the time to add this very traditional Indian recipe! I have prepared and eaten it all my life. You can pretty much change the proportion of all spices and condiments to match your taste. So feel free to cut down on chillies. If you do not have dried mango power, just use fresh lemon juice and it will be just as good. For a different twist, add 1/4 cup thawed frozen coconut - this is very traditional around the Indian coast. Also, use peanut or vegetable oil instead of ghee to make it healthier. - 04 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wow, these ARE good. the first time i made this dish, i boiled the potatoes too long so this turned out more like indian mashed potatoes. very very spicy stuff, but its also very good. the second time, today, they were perfect. im eating a bowl of it rite now and i have a huge jug of water next to me. we really liked this, but its not recomended for young childern. but for teens and adults, this stuff is great! to bring down the heat a bit, i served this with some sour cream at the side. thanx RG!!! - 23 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
