- One Kilo of small new potatoes
- One small onion chopped
- Two garlic cloves, chopped
- Four tablespoons of oil
- One tablespoon of mustard seeds
- Two tablespoons of black onion seeds
- One teaspoon of medium hot curry powder
- A heaped teaspoon of butter
- salt and black pepper to season
Wash and halve the potatoes and place into a pan of salted boiling water. Cook until tender. Drain and put to one side.
In a large frying pan add the oil and heat until bubbling. Add the potatoes and chopped onion and fry until the onion is clear but not brown.
Next add the garlic, mustard seeds, curry powder and black onion seeds and let it sizzle for five minutes.
If there is any oil remaining drain it from the pan. Add the butter and continue to fry until the potatoes have a slightly crispy coating from the butter and the seasonings. Season with the salt and black pepper.
