Diced Potatoes with Turmeric and Cumin Recipe

1-1/2 pounds new potatoes, scrubbed, not peeled
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon ground asafetida
1/2 teaspoon whole black mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
3/4 teaspoon salt

Cut the clean potatoes into 1/2-inch dice.
Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over a medium heat.
When hot, put in, in quick succession:
- First, the asafetida.
- A second later, the mustard seeds.
- Then, the cumin seeds.
Now, put in the potatoes and stir once or twice.
Sprinkle with turmeric.

Continue to stir every now and then and cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are light browned and almost done. Sprinkle in the ground coriander, ground cumin, cayenne, and salt. Stir and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Serves 4
