Despite its name it’s unlikely this dish hails directly from Mumbai but is more of an amalgamation of various Indian potato dishes.

A bit like an Indian potato hash, as well as being a versatile side dish, it’s fantastic topped with a fried egg for breakfast!

Bombay potatoes and I decided to have a prawn pathia ! Scrummy! My first attempt....I’ve done a rogan josh since and that was yummy too!

This looks delicious- what a fantastic first attempt! Thank you for sharing and happy spicing!


Bombay potatoes, saag paneer, with pilau rice and a lamb version of moghul chicken. We don't eat out for curry anymore! We must have saved so much money on eating out since I've become addicted to the curry legend recipes! I've even been asked to be someones personal chef! The Spicery makes it so easy, anyone can make curry like a pro!!

Woah- this looks like an incredible spread of food! Hats off to the chef and your Curry Legend feasts must taste truly divine if you're having requests to be someone's personal chef, well done!


Super easy to make, great turn out. 4/10 from me.

Glad you enjoyed this! We do love brilliant Bombay potatoes!


Karahi Chicken 4/5 Delicious, but I would spice it up just a little more. Bombay Potatoes 5/5 Excellent recipe and will feature more in my cooking ! Nans 4/5 Certainly a fun challenge the first time.

Wow, this all looks delicious, Matt - great job!


Absolutely delicious and extremely moreish!

This looks like a really sophisticated spread on your gorgeous gold tableware! Great job, Fiona - we're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed it.


Amazing dinner such beautiful flavours !

Great job, we're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed it!


We recently had a family party during "Legend Month" with all the food cooked from the How to be a Curry Legend, Curry Legend Veg Curries & Curry Legend World Curry recipe books. It was legendary! There were beef, lamb, chicken, fish and many vegetarian dishes too. One of the most popular was Bombay Potatoes. It is simply delicious, comforting and very moreish!

What a spectacular feast, and incredibly professional too with the balti bowls and individual labels. We're very impressed!
