ARVINDA'S MASALA POTATOES

For this recipe Arvinda's 'go-to' Curry Masala blend always works like a charm, but why not try an unconventional blend like Arvinda's Butter Chicken Masala on potatoes? Just because it says "Butter Chicken" on it, doesn't mean it should limit you from trying it in your chick pea dishes, to spice up spinach, in a quinoa salad or on these potatoes. Give it a try, we assure you, you're going to love the flavours.

Ingredients: 

2 lb. potatoes, peeled and cubed

1.5 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. Arvinda's Butter Chicken Masala

In a large bowl, mix olive oil and Arvinda's Butter Chicken Masala. Fold in potatoes coating with mixture. Arrange potatoes on a baking sheet.
