Honestly, the title says it all…

This is my go-to recipe when I don’t have time, or am too tired to cook but want food that reminds me of home!

And it looks pretty! What more can you ask of food?

All you need are potatoes, an onion, some cilantro, cayenne, turmeric powder, oil and salt!!

First, peel and cube the potatoes (about 1 inch cubes should do it).

Put them in a pot of cold water, add some salt and bring it to a boil.

As soon as it starts to boil, drain the potatoes and set them aside.

In the meanwhile, chop up an onion.

Any which way you like..As long as you don’t just throw the whole thing in..

Heat the oil in a skillet and throw the onions in..

I recommend using an oil with a high smoking point (I’ve used peanut oil here) .

5 minutes in and it’s time for the spices!!

Now, a word of warning, both cayenne and turmeric are quite potent, so open those windows and get those vents working people!

First, a teaspoon of turmeric… Saute on low heat for a minute.

And then as much cayenne as you can handle.

Come on, don’t be lame.

On the other hand, don’t be stupid…

I speak from experience.

Lunch yesterday, actually.

One small serving of udon noodles and  half a cup of Sriracha (it looked so pretty and red!)  later, I’m still in pain :(

So, just remember, you aren’t supergirl… Or superman… Or super-purple-pony…

Wait what???

Add the salt and cook for another 2 minutes or so..

Finally throw in the partially cooked potatoes and stir the whole thing around until the spices are spread out evenly..

Cook on a low flame until the potatoes are completely cooked..

Garnish with cilantro and serve hot! :D


I dare you to find an easier recipe!

P.S. : This tastes great with pulao/roti/naan, so let me know how it goes!


(Serves 2)


Potatoes                             -         2 medium sized

Onions                                -         1

Turmeric powder             -         1 tsp

Cayenne                             -         1 tsp or more

Salt                                      -        as needed

Peanut oil                          -        3-4 tbsp

Cube the potatoes into 1 inch pieces.

Put them in a pot of cold water and bring it to a boil.

Drain the potatoes.

In the meanwhile, chop the onions.

Saute the onions in a skillet with the peanut oil on medium heat for 5 minutes.

Then add the turmeric, cook for a minute or 2 and add the cayenne.

Cook for another minute before adding the salt.

Add the partially cooked potatoes.

Stir well so the potatoes are coated in the spice mixture.

Cook on low heat, stirring occasionally until the potatoes are cooked through.

Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.

  1. This is probably the first of your recipes that I’ve felt I could possibly attempt, if only I knew what a Cayenne was :P
