Bombay Potatoes

These are parboiled potatoes which you can peel but I prefer to leave the peel on and then they are fried in a mixture of spices. I choose to fry the spices then toss the potatoes in it and roast them . Love the crunch .

Ingredients :

  • Parboiled potatoes cut into halves or in 4.
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • juice of half lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill tops or chopped fresh dill
  • (you can use your fave Indian spice,curry mix ,chili if you like it extra hot or herbs)

salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a large frying pan or wide saucepan.

When its hot add the cumin & mustard seeds,they will splutter so cover.

Then add the spices and mix  and fry for about 2 minutes.

Add the  butter and stir until it melts then take off heat and toss the potatoes in the spices ,season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Put the potatoes on a baking tray or dish pour the lemon juice on top,sprinkle the dill tops or chopped fresh dill  and bake until its golden .
