Ingredients
  1. 400-500g potatoes, chopped in to 2" pieces (about 3-4 medium sized potatoes)
  2. 250g yogurt
  3. 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  4. 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  5. 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  6. 1/4 tsp cardamom
  7. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  8. 1/2 tsp cumin
  9. 1/8 tsp fennel
  10. 1/2 tsp coriander
  11. oil, salt, pepper
Instructions
  1. Boil the potatoes until just starting to get tender but not completely soft (you want them to hold their integrity), about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add the potatoes along with salt and saute until the potatoes brown on all sides.
  3. Add the yogurt and all of the sauce and then bring to a boil.
  4. Turn the heat down and simmer for 5 more minutes and then serve.
Notes
  1. If you like a thinner sauce you can add 100-150g of water in when you add the yogurt in but I actually like thick so I only added 25g just to make sure it didn't burn.
