  • Ready In

  1. In a small skillet, over a low heat, dry roast the 3/4 teaspoon coriander, 1/4 teaspoon fennel, and 1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds individually until an aroma is starting to be given off. Combine all these with the curry leaves, and over a low heat, dry roast for about 5 minutes more. Do not burn Grind the spices and leaves using a mortar and pestle or a clean coffee grinder. Set aside.
  2. Place potato cubes in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave until about 1/2 cooked (time depends on individual microwave), about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. In a large skillet, melt the ghee over medium heat. Cook the onion, garlic, and ginger in the ghee until golden and aromatic. Meanwhile, grind the remaining coriander and cumin seeds; add with one teaspoon fresh curry powder (prepared in the first step) to the onions and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Stir in the potatoes, and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk, bring to a simmer, and then reduce heat to low. Cover, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 7 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Top with chopped fresh cilantro, and serve.

I would love to try this recipe but don't have a grinder or the raw seeds. I was wondering if Steve might give the measurements for the equivalent in prepackaged spices. Would it be the same? (I...

This dish was aromatic to make and tasty to eat, especially when the potatoes are simply warm. I found that I had to use the whole 13.5 oz can of coconut milk and cook the potatoes 15 minutes l...
