Made this tonight for family dinner to go with CL recipe for red lentil mulligatawny. The chili oil makes this recipe - gives a great smoky heat at the finish of the taste. We don't like whole coriander seeds in our food, so I used the mustard seeds and whole cumin seeds, and used ground coriander. The adults loved this dish; the teenagers didn't like the seeds. I will definitely make this again when the kids aren't around. Would make it for adventurous guests or for an Indian-themed dinner.
Indian-Spiced Roast Potatoes and Parsnips

Absolutely fantastic recipe. I made it as written the first time to rave reviews. The second time I added some variation based on root vegetables I had at hand. I kept the spices the same but added a turnip and some sliced carrots to the mix as I lacked sufficient potatoes and parsnips. It was also quite good, though not as good as the parsnips and potatoes alone.

Terrific. Cheap, easy to prep, and once in the oven, you can cook and forget about it.

I thought this was just "ok". Maybe I don't love parsnips? It was my first time making them. I liked the potato pieces best. Probably won't make this again.
