Spicy Potatoes Side Dish

Screen shot 2016-03-07 at 5.23.16 PM.png

This is an easy way to make potatoes a little more exciting as a side dish. We had them most recently  with a roasted chicken.

4 servings

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 medium clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Black pepper to taste
  • optional  – Cumin seeds

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and margarine over medium heat. Add the garlic, potatoes, turmeric, cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper.

Cover and sauté until the potatoes are tender and lightly browned, about 20-25 minutes.

I threw in a handful of cumin seeds the last 5 minutes or so.  I really like the stronger taste the whole cumin seeds give these potatoes.
