Curried Potatoes

I decided to be slightly more adventurous tonight and made Curried Potatoes. They were absolutely delicious!

Directions: Cook cumin seeds in oil, add 1/2 of a finely chopped red onion, grated Yukon potatoes, garam masala and a pinch of cayenne. Season with salt & pepper and cook for about 10 minutes. Add fresh cilantro, take off the heat and serve with a garnish of raw chopped red onion.

I added a bit of homemade yogurt to cut the heat.

Thoughts: I think this will be a fun way to make mashed potatoes with an Indian influence: instead of adding butter, add cumin seeds, garam masala and cilantro. Or use the original recipe and pour eggs over it for a quick omelet.
