I love making this dish, it’s so easy and flavoursome. It can be made in very little time, and also a good way to use leftover boiled potatoes. The fried whole cumin seeds have a unique slightly nutty flavour. I like these delicious potatoes wrapped in either chapati or pharata or simply with boiled rice. Alternatively it makes a great accompaniment with roast meat or fish. A great vegetarian, vegan dish to please many. Perfect side dish, too.
If you are using new potatoes you can simply clean them and leave the skin on for cooking.
Adding ghee is one of my mum’s tips. By simply adding some ghee at the end of most vegetarian dishes, it enhances the flavour. Who can deny a mother’s tip on cooking especially when she is a wonderful cook!
