For Lizzie.....Spicy Sesame Potatoes recipe

spicy sesame potatoes
1 KG potatoes
dice and boil until cooked without salt, no need to peel them, a scrub will do
In a large frying pan heat some oil and when it's hot add
4 Tablespoons sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon mustard seeds (black or yellow or a mixture of the two)
1 Tablespoon cumin seeds
(they should start to pop if you've got the temperature right)
Cook for a few seconds until the sesame seeds are just starting to go golden
Add the potatoes, turn and cook until they start to brown
Sprinkle with
1 Tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika/smoked paprika OR cayenne pepper if you want them hot and spicy
the juice of a large lemon (I sometimes add the grated rind too)
Cook until the potatoes start to go crispy or to taste
Check the seasoning, you might want to add some more salt
Eat them hot or cold!

Added bonus.....hours of tooth-picking pleasure when they're gone..........

Looks good and I happen to have some sesame seeds handy as I put some in tonight's coleslaw along with tumeric. Will try this recipe.
