This is delicious as a side dish to serve with other spicy dishes. If there’s any left over, it makes a good snack, reheated, perhaps with a little mango chutney.


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp brown mustard seeds and ¼ tsp


Heat the oil in a medium saucepan with a lid over a medium heat, add the mustard seeds and fry until they start to pop and jump around, then stir in the remaining spices. Add the potatoes, stir for a moment to coat with the oil and spices, then add the salt and water. Bring to the boil, cover and cook for 15 minutes or until all the water has evaporated and the potatoes are beginning to fry in
