Now, on with the Quick Asian Dish of the day, Mustard Potatoes. This dish is part of a weeklong series that I’m doing in honor of Steamy Kitchen Jaden’s birthday. She’s looking for recipes that take 15 minutes or less to prepare.
This dish was taught to us by friends of ours who invited us to their place for dinner. They are vegans from India, and they prepare dishes that are simply delicious. The food is so good, you can’t stop eating.
1 lb potatoes, diced
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp whole mustard seed
1 tsp whole cumin seed
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp salt
- Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
- Add the mustard seed and the cumin seed and toast in the oil until they begin to pop.
- Add the diced potatoes, turmeric powder, and salt. Stir gently to coat the potatoes.
Mustard Potatoes Frying
The salt causes the potatoes to being releasing water.
- Cover the pan and let the potatoes steam-fry until they are browned on the outside yet tender on the inside (about 10 minutes).
