  • 500 gram potatoes cut into wedges or cubes

  • 6 tbls light olive oil


  • Heat oil. Add fenugreek seeds and dry chilli. Fry for a minute

  1. You can add a teaspoon of masala to the potatoes if you prefer
  2. To speed up the process you can also boil your potatoes until tender and then fry them as per recipe
  3. This really is a rustic dish so you can cut the potatoes however you wish
  4. I do not use onion in this dish because the onion does tend to burn
