Cuisine: Indian
Type: Vegetables
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

4 tablespoons 60mlVegetable oil - * see note.
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlWhole black mustard seeds
1 cup 237mlPeeled diced boiling potatoes - 1/2" cubes
1 cup 146g / 5.1ozDiced eggplant - 1/2" cubes
1 1/2 teaspoons 7.5mlGround coriander seeds
1 teaspoon 5mlGround cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlGround turmeric
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlCayenne
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
3 tablespoons 45mlWater
1 tablespoon 15mlChinese parsley - optional

Recipe Instructions

* Note: 4T oil is plenty for a doubled recipe. [Prepare pots and eggplant. Start rice. Finish rest of preparation.] Heat the oil in an 8- to 10-inch skillet over a medium-high flame. [Or, use wok when doubling.] When hot, put in the mustard seeds. As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop (this just takes a few seconds), put in the potatoes and eggplant.

Stir once. Now put in the coriander, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, and salt. Stir and fry for about a minute. Add 3 tablespoons water, cover immediately with a tight-fitting lid, turn heat to low and simmer gently 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir every now and then. If the vegetables seem to catch at the bottom of the skillet, add another tablespoon of water. You may garnish this dish with a tablespoon of minced Chinese parsley.
