Indian Rice and Potatoes

Posted by EsyRecipes Saturday, October 31, 2009

Discription:This is a fabulous dish, whether it's your main dish or your side dish. It combines two of my most favorite things to cook with, rice and potatoes, and is so amazingly spiced. Although the ingredient list seems long and fiddly, the entire recipe takes about 45 minutes from start to finish. Serve with fresh lime wedges, and enjoy the flavors.

  • 3 tbsp yogurt
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh cilantro
