Aha! Simple Cumin Potatoes

I really recommend trying this very tasty and easy to prepare recipe. It’s very popular in India and especially so with kids. I made it recently when we had a few college students over for dinner and they simply loved it. I’ll get straight into it.


Ingredients (serves 2):

• 4-5 medium Potatoes: Boiled, peeled and chopped

• 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds

• 1-2 Thai Green chili – chopped

• ½ teaspoon Turmeric

• ½ teaspoon Red ground pepper/ paprika (optional)

• ¼ cup chopped Coriander leaves/ Cilantro

• Salt to taste


Boil and peel the potatoes. Gently chop them into about ½ inch cubes. Now heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds and stir. Add the turmeric and the green chili. Add the potatoes and salt and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add the red paprika if you want it more hot.


Take it out into a bowl and sprinkle chopped cilantro and serve. You can eat this with any Indian bread or make a sandwich with whole wheat bread. I like it at any time with any bread!
