Crushed potatoes with chilli, coriander and tomatoes recipe

Ingredients (serves 2)


  • 10 medium Jersey Royals, boiled and cooled
  • 1 red onion, very finely diced
  • 2 tomatoes, de-seeded
  • Half a bunch of fresh coriander, chopped
  • ½ a red or green chilli, finely diced (add more if you want it spicier)
  • A large pinch garam masala
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter for frying


Crush the potatoes with your fingers leaving large-ish chunk. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the potatoes until golden and crispy. Add the garam masala, mixing gently so as not to break up the potatoes. Spoon them into a boil and add the rest of the ingredients, tossing it all together.

Season and serve with barbecued meats or sausages.
