Indian Style Potatoes

On 3rd October, This was dinner…

A bowl of potatoes for Friday night dinner didn’t sound like the most appealing of meals but this was another winner from Bill Granger Easy. The down side? The house reeked of the flavours and as wonderful as they were, it’s a bit much at 6.00am.


  • Peel & cube some potatoes
  • Finely chop some garlic
  • Peel & grate some ginger
  • Chop some spring onions
  • Slice a green chilli
  • Get some oil, mustard seeds*, curry powder, turmeric, butter, eggs & seasoning ready

* I accidently used black onion seeds


Bring the potatoes to the boil in salted water, you want them to be ‘just’ tender. Drain and leave to cool whilst you get on with the other stuff.

Heat some oil in a pan and put the mustard onion seeds in, be ready once they start to pop! Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric and curry powder and cook for about 30 seconds, stirring well.

Add the butter to the pan and once melted add the potatoes. Fry for a least 5 minutes, leave them for a while then gently turn in the pan so you get some nice golden bits.

Throw in the chilli and spring onions and season well. Cook for another minute or so.

Serve with a fried egg and another sprinkle of spring onion.
