Best Ever Bombay Potatoes

A restaurant dish and probably a hybrid of some of India's more popular homegrown potato recipes. I have to say this dish beats my own Punjabi cumin potatoes, and it goes with almost everything.

Ingredients

  • Salt, to taste
  • 3 large potatoes (about 2 pounds total), halved
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1/2 Ounce peeled ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 Cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 Teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 large onion, chopped roughly
  • 2/3 Teaspoons turmeric
  • 2 Teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 -3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • Large handful of chopped cilantro leaves

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and boil until just tender, up to 30 minutes. Drain. When cool enough to handle, peel and chop into 1-inch cubes.

Quarter 1 of the tomatoes. Blend together the ginger, garlic, and quartered tomato until smooth.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the cumin and mustard seeds, and once the cumin starts to darken, add the onion. Cook for 1 minute before adding the ginger and garlic mixture, the ground spices, and salt, to taste. Sauté gently until the garlic smells cooked, for 1-2 minutes.

Cut the other tomato into slim wedges. Add the tomato wedges, stir well, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Tip in the potatoes and cook for 3-5 minutes to absorb the flavors. Taste and adjust the seasoning, stir in the chopped cilantro, and serve.

Potato Shopping Tip

Only buy potatoes that are firm, intact, and without any sprouts or green parts.

Potato Cooking Tip

Potatoes oxidize quickly; have a bowl full of cold water to put your potatoes after cutting them in order stop them from oxidizing.
