Dorti, I've finally accumulated all the spices you use to cook so will start trying your recipes now :-) This one sounds really good but can you tell me if I can substitute the coriander power with coriander seeds? (that's what I have on hand). Please let me know :-)

Deeli, I would just crush or grind the coriander seeds. I think that whole seeds wouldn't give off as much of the flavors. You could use a coffee grinder or an old fashioned mortar and pestle.

Let us know how it turns out, I've been interested in Dorty's recipes too.

Hey Dorty and Jess! I forgot to tell you that I tried this recipe and it was yummy! Instead of slicing the potatoes I diced them and scooped from the plate with pieces of pita bread :-) No fork was even needed ;-)
