Potato Masala

LOVE the flavors of India, here is a lovely recipe that is inspired by a similar Indian dish.

Spice wise, potato masala is a quite mild dish. This can be eaten as a side dish (serves 3-4), entree (you can sprinkle in so walnuts for some protein), or roll it up in a wrap for lunch! Very versatile dish, enjoy!

Potato Masala

e.g. These muffins have a crunchy top with a crumbly inside where you taste the subtle hint of lemon.


  • 2 Large organic russett potatoes (peeled, cubed)
  • 1 tablespoon organic canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon organic fresh cilantro


Step 1
Boil the potatoes for approximately 10 minutes or until soft.
Step 2
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium to high heat. Place in one cumin seed, once it cracks the oil is hot enough.
Step 3
Add in cumin seeds, mustard seeds and salt; stir around until the cumin seeds crack.
Step 4
Toss in the turmeric and potatoes, then stir fry for a few minutes. Makes sure the potatoes are covered well in the spices.
Step 5
Add in the the lemon juice and cilantro; mix well. Serve in a wrap, with na'an bread, or with basmati rice. Enjoy, gorgeous!
