Spicy Potato Curry

photo(12)Words of wisdom from the family: “Who knew potatoes could be in curry? Yummy! Spicy.” I must say, we followed this recipe pretty closely, and it is not for the faint of palate. Or maybe we’re just weak (that is also quite possible). Recipe found here.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 ½ tsp cayenne
  • 4 tsp curry powder
  • 4 tsp garam masala
  • 1 inch fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 green bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 4 carrots, washed, peeled, and chopped in rounds
  • 1 (15 oz.) can peas, drained
  • 1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. Boil cubed potatoes in a large pot of salted water until tender (approx. 15 minutes). Drain and let them air dry.
    2. While the potatoes cool, heat the olive oil, onion, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the onion is softer and translucent.
    3. Stir in cumin, cayenne, curry powder, garam masala, ginger, and salt. Cook just a few minutes until fragrant.

    Add peppers, carrots, peas, potatoes, and coconut milk. Simmer 5-10 minutes to meld flavors.

NOTES: I’ve really come to love making these kinds of dishes; everything in a bowl with a tasty sauce. I think this recipe, like many other curries and stir fries, is flexible- a good clean-out-the-fridge kind of dish. Proceed with caution though- we found this very spicy. Best served with rice and yogurt.

You can take a look at my own personal blog, if you really want to, but there is quite literally nothing on it. I'm not much of a blogger, really. But here I am, posting things, and here you are, reading them.
