Potatoes with Red Chillies


When they invented the game pass the hot potato this was what inspired it. These potatoes are hot and tasty. I got this recipe from "Indian: deliciously authentic dishes" by Shehzad Husain & Rafi Fernandez. Other than the modifications listed, it follows their original. This dish is Gluten-free and contains no preservatives.



  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft but still firm. Remove from heat and drain.
  2. In a deep frying pan, heat the oil, then turn down to medium.
  3. Add the crushed chillies, cumin, fennel, coriander, and salt and fry for 30-40 seconds.
  4. Add the sliced onion and fry until golden brown.
  5. Add the potatoes, red chillies and coriander
  6. Cover and cook for 5-7 minutes over very low heat. Serve hot.
  7. If desired, this dish can be kept ready by keeping it covered over a very low heat and stirring every 10 minutes or so.
