So if you are ready to get munching, let’s get cooking.
1kg potato, peeled and parboiled
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 minced garlic cloves
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp cilli sauce
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground coriander
1 tsp tomato puree
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp fresh parsley
2 tbsp cooking oil
In a pan, heat the oil and add the onions to sauté them. As they start to turn golden, add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add the spices one by one and stir fry for a minute before adding the parsley, tomato puree and lemon juice. Don’t forget salt to taste.
Half the parboiled potatoes before adding them to the pan. Add ¾ cup of water to the pan and stir.
Leave pan open and let it cook for ten minutes (or until potatoes are tender). If the potatoes look dry, add a bit more water.
