Simple Bombay Potatoes with Flatbread

Tasty Bombay Potatoes served with flatbread which so cheap to make. This recipe uses new potatoes with the skins left on which gives added fibre too.

Serves:  4
Price per serving: 58p
For the Flatbread:
200g Plain Flour
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
100ml Warm Water
2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil

For the Bombay Potatoes:
550g New Potatoes (leave skins on)
1 Medium Red Onion (sliced)
4 Cloves of Garlic (crushed or finely diced)
400g Tinned Chopped Tomatoes (drained)
2 Tomatoes (cut into wedges)
2 Tablespoons of Curry Powder
2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil

For the Flatbread:
1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the salt. Then gradually add the warm water, mixing with your hands to form a dough.
2. Divide the dough into four pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
3.  Next on a lightly floured surface, roll each ball out flat.
4.  Rub a little of the oil onto a frying pan using kitchen roll. Heat the pan and cook each flat bread for roughly 2 minutes each side until they have a little colour. You will need to rub the pan with oil again when cooking each flatbread.
5.  Wrap the flatbreads in foil and keep them warm.

For the Bombay Potatoes:
1. Wash the potatoes then boil them for approximately 20 minutes in slightly salty water, leaving the skins on. Drain them and set to one side until they are cool enough to handle.
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, fry the red onion and garlic for about 3 minutes, then stir in the curry powder. Add the drained chopped tomatoes and tomato wedges. Give everything a good stir and simmer for 2 minutes.
3.  Quarter the cooked new potatoes and add them to the pan. Stir then cover with a lid and simmer on a low heat for 5 - 10 minutes until the tomato wedges are cooked. Serve and enjoy!

I used Tesco Cypriot New Potatoes in this recipe, which taste really delicious and are very reasonably priced at £1.25 per bag. They are available in Tesco stores nationwide from now until the end of March. I think using a good quality potato definitely makes a difference with this recipe.

I also chose to use Tesco medium curry powder but Tesco also sell mild and hot curry powder, depending how spicy you like your food.

The ingredients cost £4.77 to buy at Tesco.
New Potatoes - £1.25
Red Onion - 13p
Garlic - 30p
Chopped Tomatoes - 31p
Tomatoes - 69p
Curry Powder - £1.00
Plain Flour - 40p
Salt - 29p
Vegetable Oil - 80p

* Costs per serving are worked out from the amount of ingredients used in the recipe, not the price of buying the products. Once you have some these ingredients in the cupboard, they can be used in another recipe.
