I put them in the refrigerator. I reheat them in the microwave to have with another meal.

If you like Indian food you can make many many things from it. The easiest being a potato curry.

Just cut the potatoes into small cubes
Chop one onion finely
You will need 3 tsp of whole brown mustard seeds and 3 tsp of cumin seeds
3 cloves of garlic chopped
1 jalapeno or any green chili chopped
handful of curry leaves (optional but highly recommended)
1 tsp of sugar
1/2 tsp of turmeric
salt to taste
juice of a lime
freshly chopped cilantro
3 tbsps of oil

Heat the oil in a pan. Once it's hot add the curry leaves, mustard and cumin seeds. Once they splutter, reduce the heat and add the garlic and chilies.

Next add the onions and cook them until translucent. Add the turmeric, sugar, salt, lime juice and potatoes. Stir it lightly to combine. Cover and let it all cook on low for 20-30 minutes.

Stir it one more time, sprinkle with cilantro and serve with anything you desire.

toss them in oil and herbs then and roast them in a hot oven....

Or make hash browns/potato cakes,

Grate the potato, add chopped onion, chopped red/green peppers, garlic and coriander (cilantro) and a little chopped chilly.

Then make the mixture in small (burger) style patties,
then pan fry them,
flower them, the trough a egg mixture and next bread crumbs, then deep fry them...

Home Fries - aka sliced fried potatoes - are what I usually do with them, but really, the sky is the limit. Lots of recipes call for pre-cooked potatoes.
