This sounds like a weird combination, but it works really well. Bonus: this side dish makes a great little flavor punch for pretty much any main component. I served mine with next week’s Indian Spiced Burgers the first night and leftovers with plain chicken in the next day’s lunch and both were flavorful and delicious.

Dilled Curry Potatoes
500g baby potatoes
1 Tbsp. curry powder (your favorite mix will do, and some fresh curry leaves would also be great here)
1 small green chili pepper
1 Tbsp. ground turmeric
1 tsp. red chili powder (I used cayenne)
4 – 5 cloves fresh garlic (3 Tbsp. when minced)
2 Tbsp. fresh dill (or more if you have more – I would have actually liked a little extra)
Salt & pepper
Fill your largest high-sided sauté pan with water to 3/4 of the way up the sides, nestle the potatoes in, add a bunch of salt and bring to a shallow boil for 10 minutes or until soft. Drain carefully and cut into halves.
While the potatoes are cooking: mince the garlic, chop the chili pepper, assemble the dried spices, and chop the dill. Set the dill aside.
Add enough oil to your pan to cover the bottom, and heat over high/medium-high until the oil starts to shimmer. Add the potatoes, liberally salt and pepper, and give a good stir for a couple minutes until they start to color.
Add the spices and garlic and stir-fry until the potatoes are as browned as you want them to be and the garlic goes nice and crispy.
Transfer to a large bowl and toss with the dill to complete.
Serves 3 – 4
