Gunpowder Potato Bites

Gunpowder potato bites are a fun alternative to poppadoms. These oven baked bites can be topped with your favourite Indian sauces, salads and of course some fiery Gunpowder Hot Garlic Pickle to kick up the heat. Serve them at your next party and watch them disappear fast.

Ingredients
  

  • Ingredients serves 4 as a snack
  • For the Potato Bites
  • 4 medium sized new potatoes about 60g each
  • 1-2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • For the Raita
  • 2 tbsp Plain yoghurt
  • 3 cm Cucumber
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp Ground coriander
  • For the Onion Salad
  • ¼ mild white onion
  • 2 Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Fresh coriander
  • To serve: Gunpowder Hot Garlic ickle

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/ 400F/ GM6
  • Thinly slice the potatoes (aim for 2-3mm circles), place on a large roasting tin lined with parchment, drizzle the oil over them and lightly season with salt and pepper. Toss briefly to coat everything then spread into a single layer and cook for 30 minutes, turning midway
  • When the time is up check that the potato bites are cooked through by poking a few with a sharp knife. They should feel soft. If the potatoes feel woody, then continue to cook for a few more minutes until soft
  • While the potatoes cook make the raita and onion salad:
  • Finely chop the cucumber and mix into the yoghurt with the rest of the raita ingredients
  • Chop the tomatoes in half, remove the seeds and chop finely. Slice the onion as thinly as possible then chop the coriander. Mix all ingredients together
  • When the bites are cooked each one should be topped with a little raita, onion salad and some Gunpowder Hot Garlic Pickle
  • Serving Suggestion
  • Either pre-assemble the bites and hand them around or pile the potatoes onto a warmed serving plate with the raita, onion salad and Gunpowder pickle served in bowls alongside for diners to help themselves to

Notes

Expert Tips
• Once cooked these potato bites cool down quickly so make sure the toppings are ready before taking them out of the oven
• These bites are best served warm, but they are still delicious at room temperature
• This is a great make-ahead dish. The potatoes can be reheated when ready to serve and the toppings can be made in advance and refrigerated until required
• Ring the changes by using sweet potato in place of new potatoes
• Try some of our mango and ginger chutney in place of the Gunpowder Hot Garlic Pickle
