2 1/2 cups cubed new potatoes
1 small cauliflower
2 teaspoons black mustard seeds
12 medium fenugreek seeds -- up to 15
1 teaspoon freshly ground cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon powdered hot red chile -- pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons peanut oil
2 tablespoons garlic minced
1 medium tomato -- chopped
1 medium fresh serrano chiles -- chopped (1 to 2)
1 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon lemon juice -- or to taste

Preparation / Directions:

Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2- inch cubes; place in a bowl of water. Separate cauliflower into flowerets about the same size as the potato cubes. Set aside. Mix mustard with fenugreek in a small bowl. Mix ground spices together in a small bowl, and add some salt. Place all ingredients near the stove. Heat oil in a pan until very hot. Add whole seeds all at once, keeping face away from pan. Have a lid ready to cover pan, if needed. As mustard seeds turn gray, lower neat to medium and add ground spices. Cook for 1 or 2 seconds, then stir in garlic, then tomato and green chiles. Cook for about 5 minutes. Drain potatoes and add to pan, along with cauliflower; cook for 5 minutes, stirring to coat vegetables with spices. Add 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup cilantro. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender. Check water level frequently, and add more as needed. Taste for salt, add lemon juice, stir well, and serve garnished with remaining cilantro.
