Spicy Potatoes (chatpatay aaloo)

This one is for the spicy tongues… found this recipe in one of my cookbooks… changed it a bit according to my taste and here it goes, another yummy recipe…


Potatoes                       3 to 4 medium size
Cumin seeds                  1 tsp
Red chilli powder            1 and half tsp
Salt                               to taste
Garam masala               1 tsp
Turmeric powder            1 pinch
Lemon  juice                  1 tsp
Green chillies, fresh coriander for garnish


Boil the potatoes in their skins, then drain, peel and cut into ¼ inch pieces. Heat oil in a pan and fry cumin seeds over medium heat until they turn lightly brown. Stir in the potato pieces and fry until lightly browned. Stir in the chilli, salt, turmeric and garam masala. Stir in the tomatoes and cook until water has been absorbed. Pour in the water, bring to boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Add lemon juice. Sprinkle with garnish.
