Whenever possible I use Maris Piper potatoes but any floury potato variety works really well. Leftover boiled or roasted potatoes can be used, just see my note at the bottom of the recipe. If main crop potatoes are out of season, the recipe still works with new potatoes.

Homemade Garlic Naan Bread oozes with garlic butter and is deliciously soft with just the right amount of chew. Easy to make & so much better than shop bought !

By:

Ingredients
  • 8 to 10 medium potatoes, peeled & cut into small chunks (I used Maris Piper potatoes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 - 4 tablespoons rape seed oil or sunflower oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 teaspoons black mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons curry paste (or garam masala if you prefer)
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat your oven to 200 C
  • Step 2 Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water.
  • Step 3 Add salt and turmeric before bringing your potatoes to the boil and then simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  • Step 4 Drain your potatoes and toss them with the remaining ingredients ensuring all the potatoes are well coated.
  • Step 5 Turn out into a large roasting pan and pop in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes until nice and crispy.
  • Step 6 Note: If using leftover boiled or roasted potatoes, simply toss the potatoes in a mixture of turmeric, curry paste, onions, oil and black mustard seeds before popping in the oven for 20 minutes.
