Indian Potatoes with Peas


Lately I have been craving Indian food. While it's not the cheapest thing to eat out (my favorite lunch buffet is $13.99 - ouch!!!), it can be fairly economical to make at home once you stock up on the basic spices found in the Indian pantry. Because many people in India are vegetarian, there are many tasty meatless dishes to choose from as well. Here is an easy, quick recipe if you're new to Indian food. Serve over basmati rice.

Indian Potatoes with Peas

1 onion, chopped

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 tsp. garlic

1 tsp. ginger

1 pound potatoes, peeled and cubed

1/2 bag of frozen peas
1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon coriander

3 medium tomatoes, chopped


Directions:
1. Lightly brown onion in oil in a medium size skillet until golden.
2. Stir in spices. Add potatoes and cook 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
3. Add tomatoes and peas, cover pan and cook until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes.
