Recipe: Bombay Potatoes

From Melissa M., parts unknown, comes a spicy recipe from India that makes a great side dish…or a main dish if you fancy vegetarian. You can increase the amount of spices as your taste allows.

1 large potato, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon curry powder
½ teaspoon chile powder
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Put the spices and oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until they darken. Add the onion and sauté unitl golden.
Add the potato and sauté for ten minutes.
Add the tomato, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for ten more minutes. Serve with flat bread.
Serves 2.

We’d love to hear some of your favorite recipes! Send them to us here.
