Easy Bombay Potatoes

Easy Bombay Potatoes – the best ever Indian Spiced Roasties. The perfect partner for any curry recipe or to spice up your Sunday Roast!


I thought it was about time to share my recipe for Easy Bombay Potatoes with you. I’ve been making Bombay Potatoes this way for years and although I’ve posted photos on social media I’ve never got around to sharing the recipe… so here goes.


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.


The potatoes are par boiled with turmeric to give that gorgeous golden colour.


And then tossed in a mixture of curry paste, onions, oil and black mustard seeds.


After that it’s simply a case of popping them in the oven for about thirty minutes to give crispy spicy potatoes you won’t be able to resist.


No curry night at the Kitchen Shed would be complete without Easy Bombay Potatoes and I regularly serve them at our BBQs alongside my Tandoori Chicken kebabs (recipe coming soon). We’ve also been known to have these “spicy spuds” with a Sunday Roast.


I hope you enjoy Easy Bombay Potatoes as much as we do. Here’s the recipe in quick printable format so you can have it to hand while you try it out.
