The exciting thing about Indian cooking is that with a handful of traditional spices and a dash of spicy, pungent Mustard Oil, even the simplest vegetables can turn into mouth-watering delicacies. Today we look at a popular potato dish from North India.
The ingredients you will need are:
• Potatoes, cut into cubes: 250 gram • Mustard Oil: 2 tablespoon • Turmeric Powder: Quarter teaspoon • Dried Mango Powder: Half a teaspoon • Coriander, finely chopped: 2 tablespoon • Coriander Powder: 1 teaspoon • Cumin seed powder: 1 teaspoon • Asafoetida: Quarter teaspoon • Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder: 1 teaspoon • Red Chilli Powder: Half a teaspoon • Traditional Indian Garam Masala: Half a teaspoon • Salt: to taste
Heat the Mustard Oil in a pan. Add the potato cubes and fry lightly on medium heat for around 6 minutes.
Next, add all the powdered spices (except the Dried Mango Powder); that is, turmeric powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and cumin seed powder.
Now add the asafoetida, garam masala and salt. Mix thoroughly and continue frying on medium heat for another 6 minutes.
Remove the pan from the flame and add the Dried Mango Powder – mix well. Garnish your dish with the chopped coriander leaves and serve it hot.
