Potatoes on fire or is it your tongue :)

Warning: This is not a dish for someone who like their food bland. Roll up your sleeves and try this fiery potatoes. It is a wonderful accompaniment to rotis.
I followed the recipe to the T from a cookbook by Shhzad husain and Rafi Fernandez.


Small New potatoes - 1 lb
Dried red chilly - 1 oz
Cumin Seeds - 1.5 tsp
Garlic - 4 cloves
Oil - 6 tbsp
Tomato Paste - 2 tbsp
Tamarind paste - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 5 to 6
Sugar -1 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Salt to taste
Cilantro for garnish

  • Boil potatoes until tender and drain.

  • Soak the chillies in water for 5 minutes. Drain and grind with cumin and garlic to a coarse paste.

  • Heat the oil in a pan. Fry all ingredients, except the potatoes until the oil seperates.

  • Add potatoes and cook for another 7- 10 minutes in reduced heat and covered.
    Garnish with cilantro.

On another note, Rajesh has been posting a lot of pictures on my blog and have been asking him to seperate it, so here is his blog and his passion

Thanks Manisha for the wonderful award. I am a little under the weather and today R coaxed me to post this recipe so I forget my ailments and start typing furiously:)
