  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). When the oil is hot, add potatoes, and cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cilantro and garlic; cook and stir for about 5 minutes. After draining the potatoes, add them to the skillet along with the cumin, lemon juice and salt. Stir to coat the potatoes, and serve.

I LOVE the unique, delicious flavors of this dish ! To cook the potatoes & cut down on the grease and prep-time, I took the new potatoes, poked holes in them w/ a fork and microwaved them (5+ m...

OMG this is sooo tasty! Yum! Too bad we can only go as high as 5 stars since this deserves at least 10! I've had this before, although without the cumin. I believe the first time I had it,...
