  • Summary

    Of Iranian origin, ghurmas are thick-sauced, long-simmered stews, spiked with dry herbs and thickened with vegetables. My close friend R. J. Singh, more affectionately called Molu, remembers this particular curry from his days at boarding school, where there was a cook of Iranian ancestry.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 pounds russet or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, and submerged in a bowl of cold water to prevent browning
    • 2 tablespoons canola oil
    • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
    • 1 small red onion, cut in half lengthwise and then into 1/2-inch cubes
    • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 2 teaspoons coarse kosher or sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne (ground red pepper)
    • 1 medium-size tomato, cored and cut into 1-inch cubes
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems
