Spring might have finally sprung but were not done with our comforting warming foods just yet, and what’s more comforting that some hasselback potatoes with a warming garam masala spiced oil. The combination of the potatoes and spice mix creates a soul full dish which we combined with a creamy zesty sauce filled with cilantro & mint to create a perfect balance.
Not only is this recipe incredibly simple to make, you can easily make a big batch as a way to prep your meals throughout the week.
To make the sauce all you need is some tablespoons of coconut yoghurt, a handful of mint and cilantro (finely chopped), a generous amount of lemon juice and some garlic powder and salt to taste. You will be adding this sauce on everything trust me! Oh and if you’re looking for the measurements you’re not gonna find them, I always make this sauce on taste, so I invite you to do the same, turn the kitchen into a playground!
