These are superb and go with any Indian food. Bombay Potatoes – Mrs Khan Special are spicy potatoes without being over the top and always a big hit. The combination of spices make these potatoes go into orbit with taste, colour and texture. Whilst I serve these as a side dish, I could have a bowl on their own. they are that good.  Everybody knows what I’m cooking when they walk into the house and what is the first thing they ask? Am I cooking Mrs Khan’s special. The answer is always YES.  Give them a try and enjoy the meal and don’t forget to thank Mrs Khan.
