Amrita's Zeera Aloo (Cumin Potato)

This recipe is from one of my blog pals, Amrita, all the way from India. She had this posted on her blog, YESU GARDEN and I asked if I could share it with all of you.
She kindly obliged.

She doesn't give exact measurements, so you'll just have to go by your tastes.

Thinly slice potatoes.
Heat oil in a non stick pan.
Tip in a teaspoon of cumin seeds.
When they splutter
Add the potatoes.
Put in some salt
and you if - like turmeric powder
and pepper powder.
Mix well.
And cook till potatoes are done.
I like them crispy brown.

You have them as a side dish
or with rice or any kind of bread.


  1. I love the looks of these potatoes and the spices sound intriging, so I'm going to try them for lunch!I love fried tators!

  2. Lynda- that's exactly what I thought when I saw the recipe.

  3. I love this with lots of turmeric- yum!!
