1 pinch asafetida
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
4 medium potatoes, peeled & diced
1 medium tomato, diced
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt
1 each red chile pepper, crushed
6 cup light stock or water
1 cilantro, for garnish


Heat oil in a large soup pot. When hot, stir in the asafetida & immediately afterwards add the cumin seeds. When the cumin seeds begin to sizzle, add the potatoes, tomato, turmeric, salt & chile. Stir & continue to fry for a couple of minutes.

Add the stock or water, stir, bring to a boil, cover & simmer gently until the potatoes are very soft, 30 to 45 minutes. Turn off the heat & carefully mash the potatoes into the stock with the back of a slotted spoon. Garnish with cilantro & serve.
