Masala Potatoes with Cumin & Tomatoes

Masala Potatoes
A delicious accompaniment to chicken and fish recipes and only 76 calories per serving.
Method: 

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan and fry the cumin and ground coriander for 1 minute, add the onion and fry for 5 minutes. Add the chilli and potatoes, season well.

Add 200ml water, cover and cook for 8 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook uncovered for a further 5-7 minutes or until tender.

Stir in the fresh coriander just before serving.

Sanjay’s tip:

“Turmeric and cumin seeds are good spices to use because they don’t over power the taste of the potatoes”

Excellent recipe. I am a huge fan of spicy food and I really enjoyed this! Keep up the good work!

More like a spicy potato and tomato soup rather than a curry but really good!
And yes Kat.r.t.y you have to use tomatos and onions else theres no point in making it.

Cooking is one of my passions so if you do not beliveme that this is absoulutey great then u wont belive anyone else:) trust me
