This easy ginger potato dish is so flavorful. Make it even faster by cooking the potatoes ahead of time or using leftover potatoes. —Erin Kelkar, Norcross, Georgia

    I made this without the jalapeño and chili powder as I suffer from heartburn. It came out delicious, just added a little bit more salt but otherwise followed everything and it’s very good, especially with some roti.
