{Spicy Potatoes + Peas}






If I ever want something from Jay like these in a size 38 preferably in time to wear to the "uncles" xmas day shindig because clearly if anyone will appreciate a sexy pair of shoes its them, then I make him this for dinner.  It's his absolutely favourite dinner and it could not be easier to pull together.  Thank god his favourite meal is not salmon en croute.


...the spicy spuds
800g potatoes peeled and diced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp mustard seeds
2 cloves garlic finely chopped 
1 tbsp ginger finely chopped 
1 tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp turmeric 
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1/2 tsp sea salt flakes
freshly ground pepper 
50g butter
3 spring onions finely sliced 
1/2 cup peas (cooked in microwave for a minute or you could add to spuds for last few minutes)
2 fried free range eggs
greek yogurt 
a lemon or lime

Bring the diced potatoes to the boil in a large saucepan of salted water cook for 13 minutes then drain into a colander and let them sit and steam for a few minutes.

Pop the oil into a large frypan on medium heat, add the mustard seeds and once they start to pop add in the ginger, garlic, curry, turmeric and chilli flakes stir for a minute or two then drop in the butter and the cooked spuds season with s+p and cook for five minutes stirring often.

Serve with a sprinkling of sliced spring onions and peas (or sometimes I like to use diced cucumber) top with a lovely fried free range egg, a squeeze of lemon or lime and a dollop of greek yogurt.
