Potatoes with black pepper

by Madhur Jaffrey


  • 2 medium potaoes
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander


Boil the potatoes and allow to cool completely. Day-old boiled potatoes that have been refrigerated are ideal. Cut them into 2cm dice. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium flame. When hot, put in the potatoes and stir them around for a minute. Sprinkle in the salt and mix gently. Cover the potatoes and let them heat through on a medium-low flame for about 5 minutes. Stir them a few times during this period. Now add the black pepper and mix gently. Cook, uncovered, for another few minutes on a medium flame, stirring the potatoes every now and then and allowing them to brown slightly. Sprinkle in the fresh coriander. Mix and serve hot.
