Turmeric Potatoes


Yield

Makes 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

3 cups water
1-1/2 pounds small boiling potatoes, unpeeled and scrubbed
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation

  1. Heat water in small saucepan over high heat to boiling. Add potatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, covered, just until firm-tender when pierced with knife, about 20 minutes. Drain potatoes; rinse under cold running water. Let cool completely, at least 2 hours.
  2. Peel potatoes; cut into 1-inch wedge-shaped pieces. Mix salt, turmeric and red pepper in small bowl; sprinkle over potatoes in large bowl and toss to coat.
  3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot; add potatoes. Cook, stirring gently and turning frequently, until potatoes are golden brown and crusty, 7 to 10 minutes.
