Dry Potato Subji
Subji refers to a wide variety of vegetable preparations.
- 5 red russet potatoes, cubed small
- 3 tablespoons oil
- a few jalapenos, cut small
- mustard seeds, 1/3 tsp.
- cumin seeds, 1/3 tsp
- coriander powder, 1/2 tsp
- turmeric, 1/2 tsp
- chilli powder, lots (a few tsps)
- salt (to taste)
First make a chaunk. This is done by heating the oil and then
putting the mustard seeds and cumin seeds in. Let the seeds start popping.
Then also add in the jalapenoes. After a while of popping (this roasts the
seeds and enhances the flavor) put in the potatoes.
Stir for a bit. If it gets sticky, put a little bit of water in, and cover
the pot for a while. Make sure you don't scorch it at all.
When the potatoes are about half done, put in the coriander and turmeric.
Stir and cover. Put it on a low flame for about 5 minutes. It's done
when you can easily cut through a potato piece with the back of a knife.
