Delicious! The potatoes soak up the spices wonderfully.

I used 3 idaho potatoes, a head of broccoli, 3 teaspoons cayenne and turmeric, 2-4 tablespoons vegetable oil, and 8-12 cloves of garlic. I boiled the potatoes in the spiced water, and separately steamed the broccoli over spiced water as well, before throwing everything into the pan to sauté.
