Sesame Potatoes

A friend of mine makes the most beautiful yet simple potato dishes – sometimes with cumin and sometimes with sesame. Oh they are good – we eat them with ghee-dripping hot roti and a cuppa tea while we chat. There is nothing better.

Similar dishes include Dum Aloo, Aloo Bhindi, Saag Aloo, and Aloo Gobi.
