Bhaji nu Shak (dried potato veg)
Wash and peel the potatoes (or you can leave the skin on if it is
really nice) Cut the potatoes as if you were making chips but half
the size. Wash again if required.
- 5 large size potatoes
- 2 teaspoons jeera seeds (cumin)
- 2 teaspoons chilli powder
- 1/2 teaspoon tumeric powder
- salt to taste
- 2 teaspoons dhanna jeeru (a dried powder combination of powdered
- coriander seeds)
- 2 teaspoons sugar or sugar substitute
- 4 tablespoons oil
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped coriander
Heat a large wok or non stick pan and add the oil. Once oil is
hot add the cumin seeds and wait till they pop. Now take of the
heat and throw in the potatoes. Place back on the heat and stir,
add the salt, tumeric powder and cover the pan. Let the potatoes
cook until tender stir every now and again scrape the bits of the
bottom as you go along as they taste really nice and crispy!
Once the potatoes are tender remove the lid and add the dhanna
jeeru. chilli powder and the sugar. Turn up the heat slightly so
the potatoes start sticking to the bottom and become a little crispy.
Once done the potatoes should be crispy on the outside and tender
on the inside. Garnish with the chopped coriander and serve with
chappattis or even fresh bread slices!
