Pieday Friday Recipe – Bombay Potatoes

In our family we like to alternate between different cuisines when we get together each Friday night for dinner. The most recent choice was curry night, so we purchased a few different dishes from the supermarket, cooked up some rice and whipped up a couple of curries – including butter chicken for those of us who like a more mild curry and an extra hot tikka for the more study curry-eaters amongst us! I had a go at making my own bombay potatoes to go with the meal and here’s how I got on:

I diced up 5 medium potatoes and boiled these until tender but not falling apart. In the meantime, I diced 2 white onions and browned them in a little Fry-Light olive oil before adding a tablespoon of tomato puree, a teaspoon of garlic paste and cooking this off for a couple of minutes before adding the potatoes to the pan. I then added a teaspoon of turmeric, paprika, chilli powder and coriander and a squirt of tomato ketchup to make the sauce sticky on the potatoes but not wet. I cooked this off for a few minutes and added salt and pepper to taste, before tipping the bombay potatoes into two takeaway tubs ready for curry night!
