Bombay Potatoes is one of our favourite veggie curry sides but it’s not always the easiest to find in Toronto Indian restaurants, so we were absolutely delighted to make this impulse buy when browsing the shelves of our go-to British shop, A Bit of Home. A steal at $4.
We really loved the look of the packet and the fact it had four peppers and “Extra Hot” highlighted. Just to be clear this is a mixture of spices and other goodies — potatoes, an onion and tomatoes NOT included, so pick those items up too.
It was very easy to put together. Just par-boil the spuds (diced) until semi-soft, then throw in a pan with the onion, chopped tomatoes and contents of the packet. Let it simmer for around 20 mins and dinner’s ready.
The taste? Very good. The heat level was probably more a three-pepper rating rather than four, but a very nice flavour and suited the potatoes perfectly.
It says “Serves 4” on the packet but we got a dinner and lunch out of it, so goes a long way.
Will definitely be buying this again and give it a rare Brits in Toronto 5/5 stars.
