Ready In:




  • Heat the oil and saute the onions. When they begin to turn golden, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add all of the ground spices gradually and stir fry for about 1 minute
  • Now add the tomato puree, lemon juice, parsley and salt to taste.
  • Cut the parboiled potatoes into 1/2" pieces & add to the rest of the ingredients. Stir well to distribute the sauce and add 3/4 cup of water.
  • Cook uncovered for about 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the sauce has reduced. (You should add a little extra water if the potatoes look a little dry whilst cooking).

    Very Delicious! I made these with Zucchini Ki Bhaji - Stir-Fried Zucchini, and rice. It was one of the best dishes I've tried. Thank you!

    These are wonderful potatoes! We really enjoyed them...with only one regret....I halved the recipe....I WANT MORE! I bet these would be just as good the next day...after all the flavours melded. Thank you for posting another keeper.

    I used cayenne pepper instead of chili sauce but put a bit too much in. Otherwise, this was great. I will make it again but a bit less spicy.

    Yum. This recipe elevates a simple potato into the star on the plate. I was surprised at how much we enjoyed these and wished I had made the full amount. I did sub sriracha for piri piri as I had that on hand. I also used cilantro instead of parsley. Made for ZWT 4.
