Recipe type: Side Dish

Serves: 4 to 6 servings
  • 8 to 10 medium potatoes, peeled & cut into small chunks (I used Maris Piper potatoes)
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 - 4 tablespoons rape seed oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 teaspoons black mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons curry paste (or garam masala if you prefer)
  1. Preheat oven to 200℃ / 400℉ /Gas Mark 6.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water.
  3. Add salt and turmeric before bringing your potatoes to the boil and then simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  4. Drain your potatoes and toss them with the remaining ingredients; ensure all the potatoes are well coated.
  5. Turn out into a large roasting pan and pop in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes until nice and crispy.
When 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.
