Bombay Potatoes

Bombay Potatoes

These potatoes are just too good! The taste is extremely flavoursome and for those who love potatoes, then this dish is definitely for you to try!! I must admit, I am not a great fan of potato in a curry but I just love the flavours in this dish and also it is not very saucy, so you do not really need anything else with it. You can serve this as a starter or as a part of a mail meal. Kids will love them too.

Serves 4 (As a starter)

Ingredients

  1. 500g Miniature Potatoes
  2. 1 ½ tbsp Coriander and Cumin Powder/Thana Jeera
  3. ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
  4. 3tbsp Tomato Puree
  5. 4tbsp Oil
  6. 7 Curry Leaves
  7. 1tsp Pureed Garlic
  8. 1tsp Pureed Ginger
  9. 2 Green Chillies- Finely Chopped
  10. 1 ½ tsp Garam Masala
  11. 1 Small Onion- Pureed
  12. 1tsp Poppy Seeds/ Rye
  13. 1tsp Whole Cumin/Jeera
  14. ½ tsp Amchur Powder/ Mango Powder
  15. Salt to taste
  16. 1 Cup Water
  17. Chopped Coriander- For Garnishing

Method

Peel the potatoes and boil in salt water until tender. Drain and leave aside. In a wide pan, take the oil, add the poppy seeds and whole cumin and let it crackle. Add the onions, garlic and ginger and sauté until translucent. Add the chillies and tomato puree. Let this cook on low heat for a few minutes. Add all the rest of the dry spice powders and again cook for a few minutes. Add the potatoes and gently coat with the mixture. Add the salt and the water. Cook to allow all the flavours set in the potatoes. Let the water evaporate slightly until you have a thick reduced sauce. Taste for salt at this stage. Sprinkle with coriander and serve hot.
