Curried Potatoes and Clove Rice

What you need: 

6 sweet potatoes, sliced thinly
2 onions, chopped
4 cloves, minced
Indian curry powder
Cayenne pepper
salt & pepper
Vegetable oil
Basmanti rice(for 4 people) brown/white whatever you prefer
Clove powder
1 cup Raisons (optional)

What you do: 

In a large pot, boil the potatoes until they are almost ready. In a large skillet, heat enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of your pan. Add the garlic and onions and fry them on medium heat until they are soft. Add the potatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then, add curry powder to taste, usually requires quite a bit, depending on the potency of the curry. Sprinkle with Cayenne, just to add a bit of a bite! Allow to simmer, stirring regluarly until the rice is ready. In another pot, prepare the rice. Once it is complete, sprinkle with clove powder, use sparingly as it is quite strong, and add 1 cup of raisons. Mix well, and serve as a side to the potatoes. N.B. If you dicce up aome cucumbers and mix them with non-dairy yoghurt, it is a really nice side to take some of the bite off of the spice and to alternate between dishes.
