1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Haldi, ground turmeric
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Dhania, ground coriander
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Jeera, ground cumin
1 Teaspoon(s) Paprika, powder

(from Von Welanetz Guide to Ingredients) (A Punjabi recipe originally
from Paul Bhalla's Cuisine of India restaurant in Los Angeles) In a
large wok, heat ghii and brown potatoes lightly. Remove the potatoes
and remaining ghii/butter and set potatoes aside, reserving the
ghii/butter. Pour in the mustard oil. [To prepare mustard oil for
cooking, heat until oil just begins to smoke, then let cool a bit.
Reheat and begin cooking.] When the oil is hot (but not smoking), add
the mustard seeds. Almost immediately they will begin to pop. Stir in
the onion and toss until lightly browned. Reduce heat and add all
remaining spices. Cook, stirring constantly, until lightly toasted.
Add cauliflower and fry a little bit, until cauliflower is to the
point that it and potatoes both need the same amount of cooking time
to be fully cooked. [After frying the cauliflower just a bit, I add
about 1/4 C. water to keep everything from sticking/burning, but this
probably wouldn't be necessary if I used non-stick cookware.] Add
potatoes and tomatoes, cover, and cook until done. Add reserved
ghii/butter and salt to taste. Posted to CHILE-HEADS DIGEST by Brent
