Roasted Potatoes with North Indian Spices

Potatoes are a staple throughout India. While Northern Indian cuisine is not known for hot and spicy dishes (unlike the southern part of the country), you can finish these deliciously zesty potatoes with 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper for extra spiciness, if you like.

Cooking Light APRIL 2008

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup potato mixture and 1 lime wedge)

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 3 pounds small red potatoes, halved (about 8 cups)
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons black mustard seeds
  • 6 dried red chiles
  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 8 lime wedges

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Combine 1 tablespoon oil and potatoes, tossing to coat. Set aside.

3. Heat remaining 2 1/2 tablespoons oil, mustard seeds, and chiles in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook 1 1/2 minutes or until seeds begin to pop. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add ginger, garlic, and jalapeño to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in salt, turmeric, and Garam Masala; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add spice mixture to potatoes, tossing to coat. Arrange potato mixture in a single layer in a 13 x 9–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
