I love potatoes, I can stay away from lots of carbs but just not potatoes.  You give me potatoes in any shape or form and I will devour it, when I was much younger I couldn’t let a day go by without crisps so I think that’s were my addiction to potatoes started. It’s why I absolutely love these  Fenugreek Fried Potatoes.

But I promise I don’t eat potatoes everyday although I could. This recipe is a lovely way to have fried potatoes without it being bland. It has just a hint of spice with a soft centre and crisp on the outside, it’s really yummy!

Fenugreek Seeds

Biting into a fenugreek seed is not the best, it is quite bitter. Often fenugreek seeds is added for the flavor and I must admit I love the flavor it gives these potatoes. It is different to any other potato you will eat.

Once fried it gives off a sweet aroma and the flavors really infuse into these potatoes.You have to try it for yourself to believe me. 

Serving the potatoes

There are a few very different ways to make spicy potatoes but these Fenugreek Fried Potatoes are my favourite. It goes really well with some Dal, Brinjals or any other veggie curry you prefer.

How to cook the potatoes

The best way to make these potatoes is to cover it and allow it to simmer on low heat until they are soft. Then the lid is removed and you allow it to fry on a high heat so the outsides become lovely and crisp…yum!
