A feisty dish of grilled new potatoes tossed with toasted spices, fresh green chillies, spring onions and coriander. It’s hard to believe that two of the most everyday ingredients in Indian cookery – potatoes and chillies – were only introduced to the country in the early seventeenth century when the Portuguese arrived. Thankfully, both ingredients thrived.

This potato dish is an excellent accompaniment to lamb raan.
