Bombay potatoes for the Whole Family

I came up with this as the oven was on, I was thinking about what to cook us for lunch, didn't feel like a sandwich and this popped into my head.

I probably would have added a little mango chutney if there had been any in the cupboard.  It was good, I'm not totally convinced of the wisdom of eating carbs with carbs, feel like a snooze now but that's no bad thing as my son has a sleep after lunch.

Bombay Potatoes - serves 2 adults and a toddler as a main dish, more as a side dish


400g, 14oz new potatoes, halved if large
2 tsp curry paste (I used Madras)
2 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tomato, chopped up


Preheat the oven to 200oC / 400F.

Mix all together, pour into a dish which tightly fits the potatoes, add 4 tbsp water.

Bake for 45 mins or until the potatoes are cooked stirring once if you remember.

Serve with rice cooked with peas or as a side dish with another curry.

You might be surprised but my 2 year old loved it.  If you're unsure about your child and their ability to cope with spices, just tone down the curry paste, use something milder.
