Crunchy Potatoes Recipe


  • 4 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 60 ml Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp Panch Phora
  • 1 tbsp Grated Ginger
  • 1 red Chilli, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 3 pods of Garlic, crushed
  • 1.5 kg Potatoes, Chopped
  • 1 tsp cracked Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Coriander leaves


  1. Boil, steam or microwave potatoes until almost tender; drain.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp ghee in small pan; cook panch phora, stirring, until fragrant.
  3. Add garlic, ginger, chilli and cumin; cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  4. Heat half of the remaining ghee in a large pan. Add half the potatoes; stir gently for about 5 minutes or until browned and crisp. Remove from pan; repeat with remaining ghee and potatoes.
  5. Return potatoes, with spice mixtures, salt, pepper and juice, to pan. Stir until just heated through. Just before serving, sprinkle with coriander leaves.

Tip: A very stale loaf of bread can be considerably freshened by dipping it in milk or water (or a mixture of the two) for about a minute. After this, put it into the oven to crisp for about fifteen minutes.
