It's National Vegetarian Week so thought it was a good time to share this recipe (which includes some foraged vegetarian ingredients)
Bombay potato and spinach or nettle pie
We love this in our house! I love Indian food so much and so does my daughter Lily as long as it’s not too spicy 🌶
I always make an extra batch of the Bombay potatoes on their own too so I double the recipe 😋
I use the Geo organic Balti or Tikka masala paste from Village Greens instead of the spice mix in the recipe - these pastes are seriously good! I use them in all my curries.
You can also make little pasties if you use shortcrust pastry. Kids absolutely love the pasties!
Also it’s delicious if you add feta
My quick version is below but the full recipe is here
Cube and par boil 3 large potatoes for 15 mins
Fry 2 onions and when done add to the potatoes, stir in 3 tbsp of Geo organic balti or tikka masala paste,
Add 2 chopped tomatoes and a good handful of chopped coriander
Wash 2 handfuls of spinach or nettles (wear gloves!), squeeze all the water out and add
Oil your pie dish, lay the pastry over so it hangs over the sides, lay it over the base
Spoon in the filling and fold the pastry up to cover the top
Bake at 180 degrees for 35 mins - but check as all ovens are different and the pastry can burn quickly!
Yummy with salsa or greens
