Bombay aloo (potatoes)

Substitutes:

  • No curry powder? Use 1tsp each of ground cumin and ground turmeric, or 2tsp of masala powder. 
  • No fresh ginger? Try with ginger paste or ground ginger instead. 
  • No rice wine vinegar? Swap for white wine vinegar, red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
  • No red onion? Use shallot or white onion instead. 
  • No fresh coriander? Swap for fresh parsley. 
  • No golden caster sugar? Any sugar will work.
