These spicy, stir-fried baby potatoes have become a firm favourite with my friends and family.

The potatoes can form part of an Indian banquet, served with salad and grilled chicken or in a wrap with some cooling raita and fresh salad.

My style of cooking is very traditional with a healthier twist, so I use less oil and butter. This can mean the pan gets too hot, resulting in a burnt finished dish, so always add a splash of water when the pan needs it, this reduces the heat to save spices burning and gives you a natural yummy sauce.

I like to add an extra fresh chilli to this dish and have been known to squeeze lime or clementine juice towards the end.

    Lajina showed us how to make this at one of the classes, and it’s lovely. I’d never had curried potatoes before, and the lemon juice at the end made it really moorish! Highly recommended recipe!
