My partner, Andy, loves potatoes so much I have nicknamed him 'Spudley!' Potatoes are the one thing he desperately misses on a low-carb diet. He loved these potatoes and dubbed them 'just beautiful.' Bombay potatoes are a very popular Indian side dish in the United Kingdom.

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the yellow mustard seeds, black mustard seeds, and turmeric in the oil until the mustard seeds begin to pop. Add the turnips to the skillet; cook and stir until the turnips are completely heated through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt to serve.

I didn't care for the taste of the turnips paired with the spices so the second time around I made it with potatoes and it was fantastic! Read More

This is an excellent recipe for lower cholesterol. Great for replacing your home made fries. I would baking instead of frying. Put the oil in your pan then the turnips and spices. Toss altogether to mix and pop in the oven about 350-375 for about 30 minutes. Less fat that way. Read More

Very good dish. I can't give 5 stars because I changed it somewhat: I used 3 potatoes and 2 turnips; omitted black mustard seed because I didn't have any; and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes instead of the 1& 1/2 t. grd red pepper (BTW the directions do not include using the grd red pepper).
