Curried Cumin Potatoes

So I'm not typically impressed with potatoes sauteed in a pan.  They lack flavor and inevitably need kecthup regardless of what's on them.

These however, wow!  A ton of flavor.  They were slightly on the salty side, but they also had a big curry flavor.  They were really good witht the Yogurt-Paprika Chicken with Lemon.

Will have again.

"A flavorful side dish of Indian cuisine. This dish blends the mild flavor of cumin with the unrelenting spice of curry. A truly engaging dish."

2 pounds new potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch thick pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons cumin seed
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1. Place whole potatoes into a saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until just tender. Drain, and cut potatoes into quarters. Set aside to keep warm.

2. Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Saute the cumin, turmeric, and curry powder for 1 minute. Add potatoes, and saute until toasted. Toss potatoes with sea salt, pepper and fresh cilantro, and serve hot.
