  • 500g potatoes peeled, and diced
  • 2tbs olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1tbs mustard seeds
  • 1tbs coriander seeds
  • 1tsp turmeric powder
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Place potatoes in boiling water and bring to the boil. Cook for about 20 minutes until the potatoes soften and you are able to slide a knife through. Place in a colander and allow the water to drain off. Set to one side.
  2. In a saucepan sauté the onion in oil under a medium heat until the onion turn translucent.
  3. Add the garlic, mustard seeds, coriander seeds and fry for about a minute. Then add the turmeric, salt, pepper and water and continue cooking under a medium heat for a couple of minutes. The onions should form a bright yellow Marsala mixture.
  4. Add the drained potatoes to the Marsala and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until well combined.
  5. Season further for taste and serve.
