  • 3-4 small to medium sized potatoes (chopped it will be about 3 cups)
  • canola oil for cooking
  • 3-4 whole dried red chillies
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • ¾ tsp crushed chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup washed and chopped dill (fresh)


  1. Peel the potatoes, cut into large wedges and then dice those into ½ cm thick slices. If you prefer to cut them another way that is fine too

  2. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. A wider skillet will allow for quicker cooking but a small 7-8 inch one is fine too

  3. Add the cumin seeds and whole red chillies. When the cumin seeds crackle turn down the heat a little and add the chilli flakes. The oil will turn a lovely red.

  4. Now in go the potatoes and salt, give it all a little whirl and let the potatoes cook for 20 minutes on low heat. Do not add water. 

  5. When the potatoes are done taste, adjust seasoning and then add the chopped dill.  Gently stir and cover the pot. Turn the stove off, let sit for a few minutes then eat.
