These little beauties are super fluffy on the inside and have a crispy and flavorful crust on the outside. For this easy Bombay Potatoes recipe, the potatoes are boiled and then roasted in the oven. Whether you peel the potatoes or not is up to you. Bombay potatoes are a healthy Indian potato dish, where the young skin can sometimes stay on.

You cook these little potatoes in salted water for a few minutes before they go in the oven marinated in flavor, giving them that great yellow-orange color.

You can now eat them on their own or, like us, with a refreshing soy yoghurt with fresh mint and lemon.


The quality of the spices is the be-all and end-all in the kitchen. For this easy Bombay Potatoes recipe, we don’t use as many spices as some, because sometimes less is more. Turmeric and curry may be in everyone’s pantry today or easily obtainable.


I recommend tender new potatoes or triplets. Of course, you can also use any waxy variety and then cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces before roasting. works too!

A word about triplets

Triplets are not a potato variety, but more of a size designation. Triplets are potatoes that are sorted out based on their size (smaller than 30-35 mm). Triplets are small and young. So you have a thin shell that you are welcome to eat. Triplets are therefore well suited for jacket potatoes, papas arrugadas , rosemary potatoes from the tin or for our simple Bombay potatoes recipe.

You can add or replace the following spices: mustard seeds, cumin, garam masala, chili powder, fresh ginger… As for serving herbs, I’d suggest the usual suspects like mint, cilantro, and/or parsley.
