This is based on a Simon Rimmer recipe from the BBC website but altered to suit our tastes. His version would have been much spicier and I can't eat anything spicy so we altered it to make it a little milder. They turned out great, so aromatic and creamy. Lovely as an accompaniment for any meal. Can see it working well with steak or a nice chicken breast as well as curries.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 45 min
Ready in: 1 hour 15 min
Yields: 4-6


  • 1Kg New Potatoes, Peeled and cut in half
  • 1 large Onion, Finally chopped
  • 150ml Natural Yogurt
  • 400g Fresh Tomatoes
  • 50ml Double Cream
  • 2tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2tbsp Ground Coriander
  • 1tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 Lime, Just the zest
  • Cooking Oil
  1. Heat a dash of oil in a large saucepan and add the potatoes. Turn them gently for about 8-10 minutes. Then remove from pan then set aside to cool.
  2. In the same pan add a little more oil and fry the onions on a low heat. It should take around 10-15 minutes for them to nicely brown.
  3. Next add all the spices to the onions and stir continuously for 30 seconds to 1 minute
  4. Add the yogurt and tomatoes, and a little Salt and Pepper to taste if you want (although I don't use any). Cover and allow it to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally
  5. At the very end stir in the cream and lime zest. Leave for a minute to heat through and serve
  6. Enjoy as a side dish to any number of meals - especially curries!

      It is a really nice creamy recipe. Something a bit different as a side dish I think!

      The original recipe called for ginger and Cayenne Pepper, so that would probably suit you a bit more. They are really yummy mild too though

      Daisy, sounds yummy and looks yummy too - I like it that they are in a sort of sauce/dressing as bombay potatoes are too dry for my tastes. I'd have them a bit spicier than you but I'm sure they're very tasty.
