   Directions: Boil the potatoes in their jackets and
   allow them to cool completely. (Day old cooked
   potatoes that have been refrigerated work very well.)
   Peel the potatoes and cut them into 3/4 inch dice.
   Break up the cauliflower into chunky florets about 1
   1/2 inches acress at the head and about 1 1/2 inches
   long. Soak the florets in a bowl of water for 30
   minutes. Drain. Heat the oil an a large (preferably
   non-stick) frying pan over a medium flame When hot,
   put in the whole cumin seeds. Let the seeds sizzle for
   3-4 seconds Now put in the cauliflower and stir it
   about for 2 minutes. Let the cauli- flower brown in
   spots. Cover, turn heat to low and simmer for about
   4-6 minutes or until cualiflower is almost done but
   still has a hint of crispness to it. Put in the diced
   potatoes, ground cumin, coriander, turmeric,cayenne,
   green chili,ground roast cumin, salt, and some black
   pepper. Stir gently to mix. Continue to cook uncovered
   on low heat for another 3 minutes or until pot- atoes
   are heated through. Stir gently as you do so. This
   delicious recipe is by Madhur Jaffrey from her BBC
   book and series “Indian Cookery”.She refers to it as a
   “comfort food”. It is extremely addic- tive, and you
   always wish you had made more! Reheats well.
