Faux Bombay Potatoes

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  1. Place the turnips into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. 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!

Easy to make! The spices took out the sharpness of the turnips! It was spicy without being over powering! Great recipe!

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.
