Indian Curry Potato Fries

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Tasty fried curried potato cubes make a wonderful accompaniment to many Indian curry dishes. I don't know that this recipe is authentic in any way, I came up with it making use of what I had around. It turned out great and I got sent to the kitchen to make more. Serve with tamarind chutney for dipping."

  1. Pour enough oil into a frying pan to cover the bottom 1/3-inch deep; add garlic, cumin, salt, turmeric, and black pepper. Heat oil mixture over medium heat.
  2. Cook and stir potatoes in the hot oil, turning occasionally, until cooked through, golden brown, and crisp on the outside, 10 to 15 minutes. Add fresh cilantro and curry paste and stir to coat. Fry until cilantro is dark green and crisp, about 1 more minute. Remove potatoes with a slotted spoon and transfer to serving dish.

This was very tasty, but I have to admit that I don't like frying foods if I can avoid it and I opted to oven roast the potatoes instead. I combined the spices with about 1/3 cup of olive oil ...

I am the recipe submitter. These are great with tamarind chutney.

WOW what a wonderful dish. Full of great flavour. As a suggestion when cooking this wonderful dish make sure the fan on the stove is turned on as the smell of the spices will permeate through ...

I love this recipe. It's tasty and a perfect addition to an Indian meal. I added an extra tsp of the curry paste, which made the fries very tasty. I think 1tsp isn't enough. Will make this again...

I am a beginner cook, this recipe is so easy to make that I will definitely do it again and it tastes so good.

Very delicious and easy to make!!
