Bengali Five Potatoes

by Sylvia Kapsandoy on December 12, 2021

Potato dishes are loved by everyone and they go well with almost everything. We use coarsely ground Bengali Five spice blend which gives the dish a crunchy texture and exotic flavored aroma.

  • 2 lbs potatoes, peeled
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons USimplySeason Bengali Five spice, coarsely ground
  • 4 tablespoons fresh Cilantro leaves, minced
How to make...
  • Boil the potatoes: In a large sauce pan, combine 2 lbs peeled potatoes with enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook, uncovered, until tender, about 15 - 20 minutes. Drain well and set aside to cool. Cut into 3/4-inch cubes. Set aside.
  • In a nonstick skillet, over medium heat, add the 4 tablespoons oil. When hot, add 1 diced onion and 1 diced green bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until they are slightly cooked, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1 diced tomato, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons coarsely ground USimplySeason Bengali Five spice and cook for approximately 1 minute.
  • Add the cooled diced potatoes and stir for about 1 minute to allow the flavors to mix. Taste for seasoning and sprinkle in more salt if needed. Cook for another 3 minutes or so to let the potatoes heat through.
  • Sprinkle on the cilantro leaves, mix in and serve.

TIP: Day old boiled potatoes work well with this dish.
