Cumin-Coriander Potatoes with Cilantro (Patates Mekhalel)
In Cairo, patates mekhalel are served by street vendors as a side to liver sandwiches, their gentle acidity and crunchy spices balancing the richness of the liver. For our version, we peel, cut and cook the potatoes in water seasoned with both salt and vinegar, then dress the hot, just-drained potatoes with additional vinegar. To lightly crush the cumin and coriander seeds, use a mortar and pestle or the back of a heavy pan, or pulse them several times in a spice grinder. If you can't find hot paprika, use 2 teaspoons sweet paprika plus ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper.
pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
cup white vinegar, divided
01In a large saucepan over high, combine the potatoes, ¼ cup of vinegar, 2 tablespoons salt and 6 cups water. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until a skewer inserted into the potatoes meets no resistance, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain, then transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle with the remaining ¼ cup vinegar and toss; set aside.
