Bombay Potatoes

Jill Dalton
Looking for a way to jazz up those potatoes? This Plant Based Vegan Bombay Potato recipe packs a powerful punch when it comes to flavor. Cubes of soft earthy potatoes swimming in an Indian spiced tomato sauce is exactly what these cool fall evenings call for.

  1. I made this and it was delicious. I was looking for a main course instead of a side do I added chickpeas, red pepper, green peas and green beans. It was yum! Thank you!
    I would attach a pic if I could!

    I made this tonight and we loved it! I tweaked it for the Instant pot and served it over spinach. I also added a bag of frozen peas and a side of baked tofu to round it out. Perfect Fall meal, thanks Jill!

    1. CATHERINE CIARAVINO, how would you make this in the instant pot? how much time in the IP and when do you add the frozen peas?

  3. Hello Jill, thank you for your recipe. I cooked it today and I liked it. Maybe I will use less lemon juice next time, but overall good indian meal!

    One question – is your nutrition info based on 100g or what amount? 240 kcal seems a lot for 100g of this dish. Or are you using a different unit / amount? Thanks! Dan
