  • 1/2 tsp Hot chilli powder

  • 1 large Onion chopped
  • 4 medium White potatoes chopped roughly into 2cm pieces


  • Heat the oil in the saucepan over a medium setting, add the garlic, turmeric, chilli powder, paprika and potatoes and stir occasionally for 10 minutes
  • Add the chopped garlic and onion to the pan, and stir every few minutes until the onion has softened
  • Add the can of tomatoes and then the water, stir well and reduce the heat to a gentle simmer allowing the sauce to thicken
  • Test the potatoes with a knife to make sure they are cooked, and then serve into pre-heated tapas dishes or bowls, with some rustic bread drizzled with olive oil


The cooking time is a guide, depending on your choice of potato, it could take longer.
