Recipe for Zeera Aaloo

Ingredients

  • 1 pound cooked potatoes*
  • 3–4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 inch freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon amchur (mango) powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Use firm, thin-skinned potatoes such as Yukon

Cooking Directions

Peel and boil the potatoes—then cut them into ¾-inch pieces.

Pour the oil into a heavy bottomed pan, set the heat to medium high, and heat until almost smoking.

Add the cumin seeds and cook until they begin popping—approximately 10–seconds. Adjust the heat as required to avoid burning the seeds.

Add the ground cumin, chili powder, turmeric, and amchur to the oil and cook for several seconds.

Add the potatoes and mix thoroughly.

Add the salt and pepper and continue cooking until the potatoes are light
