• 8 medium sized potatoes peeled, sliced
  • 1 table spoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon jeera (cumin)
  • 1  chunk ginger, minced
  • 1 green chili, chopped (de seeded – optional)
  • 1 teaspoon haldi (turmeric)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 600ml Single Cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt to taste
  • Handful of cheese, grated


  • Boil the potato slices in lightly salted water for about 8 minutes till cooked but firm. Careful not to over-cook or you will have Gauranga Mash potato! Preheat oven.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat and when hot, add jeera, ginger and then green chili. Saute quickly and add turmeric and black pepper and stir briefly.
  • Add the single cream, salt and water. Stir into a smooth and even golden sauce and remove from the heat.
  • Off the heat, add the potatoes to a baking tray or casserole dish and pour the sauce over potatoes and gently combine. Top with a layer of cheese and sprinkle with paprika. Place in the top portion of preheated oven.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Serve hot.


  • For a less Indian taste, instead of ginger, chilli and Jeera, use fresh herbs such as parsley or thyme.
  • Alternative to single cream, use sour cream.
  • Cheese is optional
  • Try other vegetables, eg. Cauliflower. Peas and carrots.
