Bombay Potatoes, Potato Curry

          When going through pins on Pinterest, I saw some pins for this curry Bombay Potatoes and had pinned them some time back. The name and the pictures were so attractive, but while checking the ingredient list, I didn't find anything special, just the regular ones that goes into a curry. I have used baby potatoes, but we can use the big ones, the curry is so very simple, but it was very flavorful and tasted so good. It's a semi-dry curry and would go well with both rice and dal or with rotis too,do give it a try, the next time you cook potatoes..

Need To Have

  • Boiled & Peeled Baby Potatoes - 3 cups
  • Onion - 1, large, roughly sliced
  • Tomato - 1, medium, chopped
  • Garlic - 5 cloves
  • Ginger - 1" piece
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Red Chilly Powder - 2 teaspoons
  • Coriander Powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Cumin Powder  - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Mustard Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chopped Coriander - 2 tablespoons
  • Salt to taste


          Boil, peel the potatoes and keep. Pound the garlic and ginger and keep.

          Heat some oil, add the cumin seeds and mustard seeds, when it starts sputtering, add the onion and the ginger-garlic and saute for a couple of minutes, till the raw smell of garlic goes away. Then add the turmeric, chilly, coriander and cumin powders and mix.

          Now add the chopped tomatoes and salt and mix for 3 to 4 minutes, till the tomato starts to break down. Add the potatoes, mix and cook for 5 minutes, then add the chopped coriander, mix and remove.

Use potatoes that don't get soft and mushy.
I have added 2 teaspoons of chilly powder since mine is not very spicy, use it according to your spice level.
