South Indian Potatoes

Potatoes are a great vegetable to use with Indian spices as they soak up the flavors of the spices so deeply. We love this dish and eat it with vegetables or chicken. INGREDIENTS 3-4 large white potatoes 1 medium to large onion

1-2 green chiles 2 teaspoons curry leaves

1 teaspoon mustard seeds 1 teaspoon cumin 1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric powder 3 tablespoons coconut oil

1⁄2 teaspoon salt - more if you like saltier food

1) Peel potatoes.

2) Cut potatoes into small cubes and steam until nearly soft.

3) When potatoes are somewhat soft, put into large pot and mash a little bit. They should be slightly mashed for a softer texture but not totally mashed, set aside.

4) Put coconut oil into frying pan, let it get hot over a low flame; when it is hot, add mustard seeds and watch them pop.

5) Add onions and let sauté until golden white.

6) Add potatoes.

7) Add cumin, turmeric and salt.

8) Add curry leaves.

9) Let whole mixture get a bit softer and mushier in frying pan.

10) Serve hot.

11) Enjoy!
