slow cooker bombay potatoes

Garam Masala is a specialty spice found in Asian markets and one of the main ingredient in this Slow Cooker Bombay Potatoes. A good friend of mine gave me a container of it to “make something everyone will love” in the slow cooker. She knows I will enjoy using this to make fabulous meals.

Finding this spice can be hard. You can make it yourself but need a spice mill to grind the harder pieces into a thin powder. Or you can order it online if that is easier for you.  I like coming home to packages in the mail and not having to search multiple stores for what I want.

These Slow Cooker Bombay Potatoes are full of flavor and spice and great as a side dish to baked chicken or even a lamb dish. 

 

Homemade Garam Masala Spice Mixture Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons tumeric
  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • One tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon cardamon

  • Toast all the ingredients for the spice mixture to the hot pan and toast until the spices become fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the toasted spices to a spice mill and grind them until they are a fine powder.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
