Indian Pototoes with Cauliflower and Peas

    What I am cooking tonight-- a delicious recipe for potatoes--Indian Style.  It's quick and easy and very warming with ginger and turmeric and a bit of chili powder.  The perfect dish for a chilly, rainy night.
    This is a good recipe if you want to try Indian cuisine and are not sure where to start.  Everybody will love these potatoes! And.....this dish is low in fat and totally Vegan. 
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
