1 tspn cumin powder
1-2 tspn chilli flakes
2 tbsn ghee or sunflower oil
Half a cup of fresh coriander


1. Peel potatoes and slice thinly. Leave aside.
2. Heat ghee or oil in pan and add cumin seeds, cook till seeds release their aroma.

2. Add sliced potatoes to the pan and cook on high heat ensuring all the potatoes are coated in ghee and cumin seeds.

 3. Now add the cumin powder and chilli flakes and mix well.
