How to make it

  • Heat the spices in the oil on medium heat, in either a sturdy, deep
  • frying pan, or a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook stirring for 5
  • minutes, careful not to burn spices. Then add onion and garlic and
  • cook for 1-2 minutes stirring. You may have to turn down the heat a
  • little bit so that the garlic doesn't burn. Then add the potatoes and
  • fry them up for 1-2 minutes, stirring. This is also the time to add
  • any of the following items: chick peas, sweet potato, nigerian yam,
  • plantain, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, or cabbage. Add
  • the water so that it covers the bottom to at least 1/4" of liquid,
  • (but not more than 1/2") Cover the pan and simmer for 15 minutes on
  • medium low heat (the mixture should gently bubble). Taste for salt
  • and be sure that potatoes are soft. Add a little more water if
  • necessary.
  • Serve on rice or scooped onto "roti" which is like a flat crepe or "pita bread" which is thicker.
