How to make

  1. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Tip in the potato cubes and boil for 10 minutes, then drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep frying pan and fry onions, turmeric, cumin seeds and mustard seeds over a medium heat until soft and lightly caramelised, about 15 minutes. Pour in the stock, increase the heat a little and simmer until well reduced. Stir through the drained potatoes, along with the peas and chilli, and season with plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Cook for 5 minutes until the potatoes are soft but not completely collapsing.
  3. Make the fresh chutney by combining all the ingredients in a bowl, seasoning to taste.
  4. Serve the potatoes with the chutney spooned over the top. Naan bread, a dollop of plain yogurt and a little mango chutney are all great accompaniments.
