Dry Potatoes (Soaka Aln)
from: Ott Edward D

  • 4 medium size potatoes
  • 2 tsp. Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. Mango powder
  • 1/4 tsp. hot pepper
  • 2 tsp. Garam Masala
  • 4 tbsp. oil (to fill pan to 2")
Boil potatoes until cooked but not overdone. Peel and cut into 1/2cubes.

Heat oil very hot, add and brown cumin seeds. Add potatoes and fry until they are golden brown. Use enough oil that the potatoes will not need to be stirred often, and thus avoid breaking them up.Add the remaining ingredients and fry for 2-3 minutes more. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon. Serve hot.

Serves: 4--6
