Indian Cumin Potatoes ( Jeera Aloo )

A nice Indian-style twist on potatoes. The fried whole cumin seeds have a unique slightly nutty flavor. A good way to use up leftover boiled potatoes. Eat with fried meat or rolled in a wheat tortilla with some chopped tomato and salad and a sprinkle of lemon juice for a vegetarian meal. Serve either hot, warm or cold. - I got the recipe from Julie Sahni's "Introduction to Indian Cooking".
