Spiced Potatoes with Peas and Kale

DelectablePlanet's picture
In India, kale isn't very common. But, when our chef, Sapna, moved to the US, she wanted to use this nutritious green in a favorite family recipe.
  Red potato 5 Medium, diced into 1/2 inch chunks
  Kale greens 1 Bunch (100 gm), rinsed
  Canola oil 1 Teaspoon
  Cumin seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Turmeric powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Coriander powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garam masala 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Red chili powder/Cayenne powder 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon (Or To Taste)
  Frozen green peas 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Fresh lemon juice 1 Teaspoon

Steam the potatoes for 10 minutes over boiling water in a steamer basket. Potatoes should be fork tender but not overcooked. Remove them on to a plate.

Prepare the greens by rinsing them thoroughly and removing the tough stems. Cut them into very thin strips. Set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil and swirl the pan to coat the oil evenly on the pan. When it's smoking remove the pan from the heat and add the cumin seeds and quickly add the potatoes. Return the pan to the stove and brown potatoes, shaking the pan every once in a while. Cook for 5-7 minutes until browned. If the potatoes begin to stick or burn in the pan, reduce the heat to medium low or add a little more oil or water.

Once the potatoes are browned add all the spices, salt and green peas. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the kale and stir well. Add 1 tablespoon of water and let the kale cook for another 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle lemon juice if desired. Serve as a side dish with any meal or make a quick wrap.
