Description Edit

Ingredients Edit

  • 2 lb Medium-sized boiling

Directions Edit

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into fingers ("French fries"), 1/3- to 1/2-inch thick. Put fingers into a bowl of cold water for half an hour or more.
  2. Drain and wipe dry.
  3. Heat the oil in an 8- to 9-inch skillet [or wok] over a medium flame. When it is hot, put in the potatoes and cook them, turning once or twice, for 8 to 10 minutes. The potatoes should be partially cooked and not browned.
  4. Remove potatoes with a slotted spoon to a plate and set aside.
  5. Put the sesame seeds into the same skillet. Stir once. Now add the slivers of garlic, continuing to stir and fry over a medium flame. When the garlic begins to turn brown [the browning happens quickly], put in the turmeric and asafetida. Stir once. Now quickly add the half-cooked potatoes, salt, and Cayenne. Stir again. Cover. Turn heat to low and cook gently until potatoes are done. Stir frequently.
