This bad boy spicy potato recipe are a fab take on the regular Bombay potatoes, minus the oil and the calories. Even better if you make this dish the day before you intend to serve it, as the flavours will infuse more and a fab dish to serve at a BBQ, buffet or even with your Fakeaway. This dish does require several spices, but if you pop along to a local Asian Supermarket, the spices are often fresher and cheaper than your Supermarket.
The beauty of this spicy potato recipe is that you can make them as mild or Are you crazy spicy as you like, and with the Turmeric turning the potatoes an amazing colour, the coriander and the red chilies, make it look really colourful and appetising. If you have any potatoes left over, they make a great filing for samosa, which I have posted the recipe for below.
