“This wonderful looking potato dish comes from Hetal and Anuja at I LOVE their videos and have learned so much from watching them. This recipe has yet to be tried in our house, but it won’t be long now as I'm always making various potato dishes - my favorite food! I've sort of sectioned off the ingredients for my own eyeballs to better follow the recipe because sometimes my brain jumbles what I'm seeing, then the anxiety meter gets pegged, THEN I give up cooking and go get 2 JitB tacos!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil potatoes, leaving them very slightly on the firm side.
  2. Peel, cool and cut into 3/4" cubes.
  3. Sprinkle the cumin, coriander, cayenne, amchur, garam masala and chaat masala on the potatoes and mix well but gently.
  4. Add salt to taste, keeping in mind that some dry spices have their own saltiness. Do a taste test and mix gently.
  5. In a skillet, heat the oil on medium heat.
  6. Once the oil is hot, add in mustard seeds and allow them to pop.
  7. Add in the dry red chili, if using.
  8. Add in asafoetida, turmeric, curry leaves and green chillies in that order. Then add in the potatoes and mix gently, but thoroughly. Cook the potatoes till they are heated all the way through and further if you want them caramelized.
  9. Sprinkle on the lemon or lime juice and cilantro. Mix well.
  10. Serve as a side dish or as an appetizer.
