Recipe for Students...
When I had entered my First year of Graduate School and was heading towards a dorm, my Mom taught me this basic recipe which was a life saver since; it was equally nutritious and easy to cook. I used to have these cooked potatoes with bread and it was just DE-LI-CI-OUS!
- Microwave OR Boil over Stove-top; 2 Medium size potatoes until they are soft
- Once the potatoes cool down
- Peel off the skin and cut them in small sizes
- Take a frying pan and pour some oil in it
- Once the oil is warm add a pinch of mustard seeds and let those seeds sizzle a bit
- Add crushed 2 cloves of garlic, crushed 2 teaspoon of ginger and some slices of onions
- Sautee them until brown
- Add spices such as a pinch of Turmeric powder, a pinch of Red chilli pepper powder, a pinch of Coriander powder and Salt according to taste.
- Add the sliced potatoes to the above mixture in the pan and mix it well.
- Simmer it for a couple of minutes so that the spices absorb into the potatoes.
