This is exactly why we LOVE this Slow Cooker Bombay Potatoes recipe - you'll likely have most, if not all, of the ingredients already in your cupboard!


  • 1kg potatoes
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1.5 tsp tumeric
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp mild chilli powder
  • 0.25 tsp dried chilli flakes (more to taste)
  • 1tsp salt, and pepper to season
  • Coriander, to serve


  1. Mix the ginger, garam masala, tumeric, cumin, chilli power and chilli flakes in a bowl. Peel the potatoes, and cut them into 3cm cubes. Half the tomatoes, scoop out the seeds and roughly chop them.
  2. In a little olive oil and over a medium heat, fry the mustard seeds until they start to pop. Once they do, throw in the onion and fry until lightly browned. Add the mixed spices, then fry for a few more minutes to ensure the onions are completely covered.
  3. Add the tomatoes to the mix, give the pan a good stir, then add a teaspoon of salt and a good few cracks of pepper to season.
  4. Cook on low for 4-6 hours (poke the potatoes with a fork, if it slides in easily then they're cooked), then serve with plenty of chopped coriander on top. Trust us, no amount of coriander is too much!
