Indian-Style Potatoes

(serves 4-6)


2 lbs new potatoes (no need to peel)
3 tbs ground nut or vegetable oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tps sea salt
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp chilli powder (or less to taste)
2-3 tbs chopped fresh corianda leaf


Scrub and then cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until just tender. Drain.

Heat the oil in a frying pan, drop in the cumin seeds to sizzle for a few seconds, then add the potatoes.

Turn the heat down to brown the potatoes lightly on all sides, then add sea salt, ground cumin, garam masala and chilli.

Cook, stirring for a minute, then toss with the fresh corianda just before serving.
