Potato Roast ~ Under 15 minutes

In our home we call this a Fever Recipe,  as this gets made when anybody gets Fever. It is very easy to make and it soothes your taste buds when you are sick and recovering; One reason is that it is a soft food, another is it's made spicy to make that bitterness go away when you are sick and don't feel like eating anything bland. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Potato - 2 medium
Cumin seeds  -1 tsp
mustard seeds - 1 tsp
curry leaves - 3 to 4
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
red chili powder ( paprika) - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Cilantro - for garnish

  1. Peel the potatoes, wash them and cut into small bite size pieces. Take a medium bowl with water and add the chopped potato pieces and microwave on high for 7 min.Potato becomes semi soft and then drain the water and keep the potatoes on the side.
  2. Heat the non-stick pan and add the Oil. Once the oil is hot add cumin seed and mustard seeds. As they start spluttering add curry leaves, turmeric powder. 
  3. Add the potato cubes to the pan and mix well with the tempering. stir fry for 3 min.
  4. Add salt and paprika to the potatoes and stir - fry for 3 min.
