Cooking time






  • 250g potatoes

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • ⅛ tsp turmeric powder

  • chilli powder to taste

  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds

  • ½ tsp nigella seeds (black onion seeds)

  • 1 tsp lime juice

  • fresh coriander


  • Start by peeling your potatoes and chopping them into medium pieces, all roughly the same size.
  • Put your potatoes in a pot of cold salted water, and bring to a boil, and boil for about 12 minutes.
  • Whilst this is happening, prepare your spice mix. In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of water, with the ground cumin, turmeric and chilli powder. Set aside.
  • Once the potatoes fall off the fork when picked up, drain them and leave in a colander to cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, in a pan, heat a tablespoon of oil on medium heat, and once hot, add your black mustard seeds and fry until they start popping.
  • Add your potatoes back in, and give them a good stir to coat the potatoes in the oil. Don’t worry if they get a bit roughed up, this is the best bit.
  • Once the potatoes are coated in the oil, stir through the spice mix that you made earlier, as well as adding salt to taste.
  • Keep on medium heat stirring regularly for about 4-5 minutes until you can really smell the spices.
  • When you’re about to serve, stir through the nigella seeds, lime juice and fresh coriander.
  • Serve in a bowl, topped with a few extra nigella seeds and enjoy.
