This is a pretty typical everyday Sri Lankan side dish,  one of my favorite aspects of any Sri Lankan meal. It is usually served beside rice, curried vegetables and either chicken or fish.

Ingredients:

500g of potatoes – boiled, peeled and cubed

3-4 curry leaves

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon dill seed

1 large onion – chopped

1 teaspoon cumin

2 teaspoons chili pieces

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

2 tablespoons cooking oil

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut

Method:

Dry roast cumin, dill seed and chili pieces for one minute in a pan. Into the same pan, add the oil, onions, mustard seeds and curry leaves.
When the onions are nicely browned, add the potatoes, turmeric, salt and coconut.
 Stir and toss until potatoes have absorbed the spice mixture.
 Sprinkle with chopped fresh coriander leaves and serve hot.
