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. Hi Manali,
    Thanks dear for the delicious side recipe! This recipe looks awesome, the combination of dill and potatoes sounds superb. Have fun with your family.

  2. 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!

  3. oh I have such a love for potatoes actually all carbs lol these look wonderful! I love new ideas for potatoes! yummmy!

  4. 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!

  5. haha I don’t have to cook anywhere, parents place or in-laws..I just get pampered at both places 😀 Thanks Savita! xoxo

  6. I love to flavor foods with fresh dill this time of year. These potatoes look wonderful!
