I’m thrilled with this recipe, particularly the amazing masala sauce which is creamy and tangy and compliments with the crispy spiced potatoes perfectly.

The secret ingredient in the sauce? Ground almonds, which adds both richness and creaminess and the fresh mint sauce brings the dish together perfectly.

The sauce is also perfect with added veg, or chickpeas served with fluffy rice.

I hope you enjoy, much love. Niki xxx.

Instructions

To make the crushed potatoes

  • Mix the spices, salt, pepper and oil in a jar, then transfer the potatoes to a large baking tray.
  • Drizzle over the mix and toss to cover them.
  • Bake for approx 40- 50 minutes–half way through squish the potatoes a bit with fork.

To make the sauce

  • Heat the oil in a large pan with a lid.
  • Cook the onions for approx 10 mins over a medium heat until soft and browning.
  • Add the spices and garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato purée, ground almonds, passata and water.
  • Bring to a low simmer, then cook covered for 25 minutes until you have a thick sauce.
  • Turn off the heat and blitz with an immersion blender until smooth.
  • Season well and stir in the yogurt.

To make the mint sauce

  • Add all the ingredients to a jar and mix to combine.

To serve

  • Serve the potatoes on the curry and top with the creamy mint sauce.

  1. Hi Niki,

    A quick question. Hope that’s okay

    You mention that the sauce is a Marsala sauce but you only have garam masala on the potatoes and not added to the sauce. Is that right.

    Thank you

    Debbie
