fried masala potatoes

this is one of my favorite indian recipes. don’t be intimidated by the long list of ingredients. most of it is just spices to make into a paste (a dang good paste, i might say). you can get the spices you might be missing at the co-op. personally, i don’t think you’ve ate food until you’ve ate indian food. but then again, my taste buds aren’t very subtle.

“prick the potatoes all over with a fork and leave to soak in water for half an hour. drain and dry. deep-fry in ghee till golden. remove and drain. meanwhile, grind the poppy seeds, almonds, cumin, coriander, cloves, peppercorns and cardamoms with the ginger and garlic, adding a little water to make a paste. fry the onions in two tablespoons of ghee, stir in the paprika, tumeric, salt, and the masala paste. fry for five minutes and stir in the yogurt. add the fried potatoes and garam masala and cook for a further five minutes. serve hot with puris or rice.”
