Red Potatoes with Dill

Red Potatoes with Dill

My family is here guys and I’m so happy and excited 🙂 I spent my whole day yesterday cleaning and cooking. These are the days when I seriously miss being in India, I mean I miss it otherwise too but when you have do everything alone, then you miss it a little more 😉 In India, we would always have domestic help to do the dishes, to wash clothes and to even cook. Now that kind of luxury is obviously not possible here, I am telling you most people miss this the most when the move to Europe/US.

Anyway I cooked a simple Indian meal for my parents. Actually last time when they came here, I got all excited and made all the heavy food, like the ones we eat in parties. And obviously after a 24 hour long flight, they didn’t feel like eating that kind of food. So this time around, I stuck to very simple dishes, one of which is this stir fry of red potatoes with dill. It’s super simple, vegan and delicious too!

Red Potatoes With Dill, Garlic & Cumin

I used red potatoes for this dish. Have you guys tried them? They are so delicious. For this recipe, I just boiled them and then tossed them with some garlic, cumin seeds and fresh dill. If you are not a fan of cumin seeds, you can reduce the quantity to half. This is one of the easiest side dishes that you can make and it hardly takes any time.

And because my family is here, I will be little busy with them this entire month. So I might not be able to answer or reply back immediately but I will as soon as possible. Have a great weekend!

 

Method

Cut the potatoes into cubes. Basically cut each potato into 4 pieces.

Place them in warm water and bring to a boil. . The potatoes should be submerged in the water.

Cover and bring water to a boil. Cook till potatoes are done, around 8-10 minutes. Don’t overcook but you should be able to insert a fork inside the potato cubes easily. Drain and set aside.

  1. These are my favorite potatoes! I was planning to make them today, but my hubby offered to take me out to dinner and I’ll be making them tomorrow. Pinned!

  2. I love red potatoes, Manali! In fact, red potatoes are one of my favorite varieties. And I love dill, so I’m thinking this would be an excellent side dish! But I’m intrigued by the cumin seeds here. More often than not, I use ground cumin in my recipes…but I might need to experiment a bit with seeds now. I hope you are having an awesome time with your family. I know you have been so excited about their visit! 🙂

  3. Manali, I love this recipe!!! I love dill!!!! my mom is coming for a visit today so I’m with you, going to keep it simple, at least for today, with the food and cooking. . because I have to clean the house! like now! 😛 love these potatoes!

  4. Me too miss those extra hands for help in kitchen that we enjoy in India. 🙂 but only in my parent’s home where I anyways don’t need to cook, you know what I mean 😉 PS: these potatoes look certainly an easy and delicious side recipe! Perfect for lite dinner. Have great time, girl, with your family. xo

  5. I do that every time Manali, serving loads of rich food when my family visits. The feast continues for 2-3 days till all the stomachs in the family get upset and then we get back to normal. But so hard to resist, right?

    Its only recently that I have started eating dill, never had them with red potatoes though. The way you have presented the dish, it looks like some Gourmet meal. Totally eye catching!

  6. Potatoes and dill are one of my favorite combinations. My husband makes a delicious potato salad with dill, but he doesn’t finish the process by cooking them in oil. That sounds delicious Manali! I’ll definitely try this recipe. Pinned!
