spiced potatoes and peas (side dish)

One of my favorite favorite Indian dishes is something called Aloo Gobi, a sort of dry curry dish with potatoes and cauliflower. Here's an example recipe for it.  I was really really wanting some Aloo Gobi, or at least wanting to chant the words aloo gobi over and over, so I came up with this very simple dish.

spiced potatoes and peas

4 potatoes, baked, boiled, or microwaved and cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
3 tablespoons butter
1-2 teaspoons curry powder or seasoning mix of your choice (Mrs. Dash, etc.)

Melt butter in a skillet.  Add curry or seasoning mix and stir for about 10 seconds.  Add peas and cook for about 1 minute.  Add potatoes and toss until coated.  Serves 4.
