Potatoes in Tomatoes

Not sure where this recipe came from. Jonathan sent me a photo with the recipe from his phone hoping that I would make it for him :) It is really tasty and I thought I would share it. My kitchen is delivered today and starts getting installed tomorrow. Its been 3 1/2 moths coming... I am SO excited!

Potatoes in Tomatoes

1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 1/2 tbsp serrano chilies
1 can chopped tomatoes
3/4 tsp turmeric
3 cups peeled and chopped potatoes
2 tsp salt or to taste
5 tbsp cilantro chopped
1 tbsp sugar or to taste

In a sauce pan heat oil, add cumin seeds and chilies. Saute for about 1 minute.
Add tomatoes with juice and turmeric. Mix well. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.
Add potatoes and the cilantro. Simmer until potatoes are soft.
Season to taste.


  1. I like the sounds of this recipe. My guy would like the addition of the serrano chiles. Delicious.

  2. Yum, I love simple dishes like this one. Congrats on the delivery of your new kitchen. I'm sure you can't wait to start using it.

  3. Aside for the tomatoes and potatoes rhyming, I bet these two would make a great combination. Can't wait to taste its distinctive flavor.
