Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add potatoes, cover, and steam until easily pierced with a knife, 30 to 35 minutes. Drain and cool until easily handled, about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Peel and dice potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Spread on baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Grind garlic, black pepper, basil leaves, and cumin seeds into a paste with a mortar and pestle.

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic paste and red chile pepper; cook and stir until garlic begins to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in potatoes and lemon juice. Cover and cook until flavors combine, about 5 minutes. Stir in orange sauce and sesame seeds.

Cook's Note:

Use a spice grinder instead of a mortar and pestle in step 5 if desired.

I would definitely make these potatoes again! Absolutely delicious. I did leave out the orange and basil because I didn't have them on hand. I microwaved the potatoes instead of steaming. I also added paprika and chile flakes. Read More

I left out the optional orange sauce and also left the skins on the potatoes but other than that I made as written. These were a little heavy on the basil for me but other than that I have no complaints. I did have trouble with the potatoes sticking in the final cooking process but that might have been due to me leaving the skins on. I think you could easily speed up the process by nuking the potatoes in the microwave for 6 minutes or so instead of steaming. All in all good flavor and one I will make again with a little less basil. Read More
