Dry Potato Subji

Subji refers to a wide variety of vegetable preparations.

  • 5 red russet potatoes, cubed small
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • a few jalapenos, cut small
  • mustard seeds, 1/3 tsp.
  • cumin seeds, 1/3 tsp
  • coriander powder, 1/2 tsp
  • turmeric, 1/2 tsp
  • chilli powder, lots (a few tsps)
  • salt (to taste)
First make a chaunk. This is done by heating the oil and then putting the mustard seeds and cumin seeds in. Let the seeds start popping.

Then also add in the jalapenoes. After a while of popping (this roasts the seeds and enhances the flavor) put in the potatoes.

Stir for a bit. If it gets sticky, put a little bit of water in, and cover the pot for a while. Make sure you don't scorch it at all.

When the potatoes are about half done, put in the coriander and turmeric. Stir and cover. Put it on a low flame for about 5 minutes. It's done when you can easily cut through a potato piece with the back of a knife.
