These are flavourful spicy potatoes which are suitable as a side dish to a main course or a party snack.
Spoon over the potatoes and toss so that they are all covered in the spices and garlic.
Add some freshly chopped basil (corriander or parsley) whatever you prefer.
I then sprinkled on some optional Sumac which is a lemon flavoured middle-eastern spice. In this dish you can use whatever oil, fresh herbs, or spices that you prefer.
Soon I shall be refilling my Masala Dabba - the Indian spice box bought home from Delhi. We are visiting an island during the month of May where spices grow in profusion-Turmeric, Cinnamon, Pepper, Cardamom, Clove, Nutmeg, Vanilla etc.
Having recently discovered the delights of using coconut milk in my own cooking I was interested to read that on the island it is a staple used in many of their savoury and sweet dishes. I look forward with anticipation to tasting their ice cream made using coconut milk.
There are large pineapple plantations on this island - a popular and tasty snack is prepare by simply cutting up cubes of the fruit, and sprinkling it with chilli powder and a touch of salt which is left to infuse for 30 mins before eating. I can imagine that this would make a tasty addition when making a pineapple upsidedown cake.
Lastly there is a plant grows on the island, which results in a commodity found in most British kitchens and used on a daily basis.
