Garam Masala Potatoes and Onions. Masaledar Aloo Pyaaz. Vegan Glutenfree Recipe

Garam Masala Potatoes

These are the easiest and deliciousest ever potatoes. Some good freshly ground garam masala, salt, ginger, garlic and onions. Yum!

To get the best out of Garam masala spice blend, get some made with whole spices from an Indian store with whole cumin, corinader, bay leaves, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper and more. You can also make your own, but store the larger quantity in whole spices. Lightly roast a small portion and then grind it and keep to use within a month or two. You can add the Garam masala to any indian vegetable stir fry, or to a gravy, curry or lentil dal soups, bean stews, or sprinkle some on baked potatoes or roasted cauliflower, add to bean burger patties, or use to marinate tempeh or seitan. The possibilities are endless.

You know what else you could do with these potatoes.. Make a Grilled Sandwich!

  7. This sounds fantastic! For some reason I never think to use haram masala for anything besides curry, I really need to play around with it more.

  8. This is my ideal Indian potato dish, love the chunky potatoes & red onions with not too many ingredients involved, but just a flavorful spice blend. Love the idea in a sandwich - it reminds me of an Indian potato salad sandwich ;) And congratulations with the feature on Vegan Food Magazine - looks fantastic!
