Recipe: Roasted Potatoes with Garam Masala

Garam masala, literally "hot mixture" in Hindi, is made of of spices including cinnamon, cloves, bay leaves, pepper, cumin, cardamom, nutmeg, star anise, and coriander seeds. In India, it varies from region to region.


    • about 2 pounds potatoes
    • 1 tablespoon garam masala
    • clove garlic
    • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
    • olive oil or vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Mince the garlic, and slice the potatoes into half-inch rounds. If the potatoes are very large, cut the rounds in half or quarters—you want bite-sized pieces.

On a baking sheet, toss the potatoes with the garam masala, cumin seeds, garlic, and olive oil. Bake until completely cooked through, about 20 minutes.
