Ingredients

  • 15-20 small new potatoes
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3-4 cardamom pods
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 cinnamon stick or cassia bark

Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in a saucepan of boiling water for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Drain and cool slightly. Peel the skins if you prefer.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Crush the cardamom pods with the back of a teaspoon. Add to the oil along with the cumin seeds, cinnamon or cassia and bay leaf.
