Gujarati Potatoes Recipe

Ingredients :

500 g floury potatoes

1 tablespoon tamarind pulp

1/4 cup hot water

2 teaspoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons ghee

1/2 teaspoon black mustard seeds

1/2 teaspoon turmeric, ground

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cilantro, ground

1 teaspoon cumin, ground

2 fresh green chilies, seeded and sliced

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut

Salt to taste


Method :

Wash, peel and dice the potatoes. Soak the tamarind in hot water for about 10 minutes. Then squeeze to extract all the juice and strain the liquid through a fine strainer to remove the fibers and seeds. Dissolve the sugar in the tamarind liquid. Heat a pan with ghee and fry the mustard until the seeds pop. Add the turmeric, chili, coriander and cumin and fry on low heat for 1 minute. Add potatoes and toss for a minute longer. Sprinkle with salt and a little water, about quarter cup. Cover tightly and cook on very low heat for 15 minutes. Add tamarind juice, sliced chilies and desiccated coconut and stir. Cover and cook for a further 5-10 minutes or until potatoes are done. Serve while still hot with white rice.
