Recipe for family meals :

Garlic Potatoes

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Vandana who is very much a keen cook of Indian dishes. Hopefully there will be more to come!

I asked Vandana for a little background information:

"I live in Pune, India. I am a South Indian so many of my recipes are from that area. I enjoy cooking and my family and friends do say that it is appetizing! By profession I am a Relocation Consultant and the India head of an International Charity. I hope that covers the introduction".


250 gm potatoes, cut lengthwise.
2 large onions sliced
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp garlic paste
2 tbs peanut oil
salt to taste
2 tbs chopped coriander leaves

  • Heat oil and add mustard. Let it crackle.
  • Put in cumin and turmeric powder. Sauté for 3 - 4 seconds.
  • Put in sliced onion and garlic paste. Fry till onions are transparent.
  • Stir in chopped potatoes, chili powder and salt. Mix well. Cover and cook on a low flame until potatoes are tender (approximately 10 minutes).
  • Serve hot along with Puris / Parathas / Nan after sprinkling it with coriander leaves.

Serves 3 - 4
