Cooking Time:

30 mins


Kashmiri Chilli Peppers - 10
 Cashews - 30g
 Waxy Charlotte Potatoes, peeled - 500g
 Oil - 4 tbps 
 Bay Leaf - 1
 Green Cardamoms - 6, crushed
 Black Peppercorns - 6, crushed

 Fresh Coriander - 3 tbsp


• Soak the Kashmiri chillies and Cashews in hot water for 20 minutes, then grind to a smooth paste with some of the soaking liquid.

• Peel the Charlotte Potatoes and prick with a fork to enable even cooking and the flavours to penetrate. Boil them in water for 6-minutes. Drain the water.

• Heat the oil in a deep pan. Add the Bay Leaf, crushed Green Cardamons, crushed Peppercorns, Fennel Seeds, Cassia Bark and Caraway Seeds.

• Once sizzling, add Asafoetida, Turmeric and Kashmiri Chilli / Cashew Paste and stir well.

• Remove from heat and gradually stir in the Plain Yogurt. When combined return to low heat, add the potatoes and simmer until potatoes are cooked through.

• Stir in the Garam Masala and add Salt to taste.

• Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, so the potatoes soak up the sauce. Sprinkle with fresh Coriander and serve with hot Roti.

"Dear Spices of India, Hi, I would just like to say thank you very much for the excellent service that I have received from your company regarding my order. I was rushing on Monday to find a decent gift idea for my Dad whose Birthday was Wednesday and I stumbled upon your site. I have never used your site before and I found it very easy to use. I was also impressed with the range of products you had available and this enabled me to cherry pick some interesting items that my Dad has never tried to cook and never tasted. Most significant for me though was the fact that I placed my order around 16.30 on Monday and you still delivered it for the next day!! Because I spent over 30 standard delivery was free, and for only 1 more it arrived the day before his birthday!! This is a fantastic price, very reasonable and I would have been perfectly happy if it had arrived on Wednesday as I thought that I had missed the post for Monday. It is increasingly difficult to find a firm that will meet basic levels of customer service, but when I find one that exceeds them I am genuinely excited and so I had to pass on my thanks and congratulations for an excellent site and outstanding service. Thank you again,"
