Really easy to make just added a teaspoon of black mustard seed and a red chilli ( added at the same time with the other spices) and it was lovely. Definitely be making again. - 17 Aug 2013


Lovely recipe, I got sidetracked and par boiled the potatoes first but would stick to the recipe next time, there will be a next time! I used some fry light oil, garlic masala and coriander powder, really nice guidelines. - 07 Jun 2016
