My classic Potato Curry

Here is the recipe for my classic potato curry. A dish which is perfect for lunch or dinner and for times when you want something simple but tasty and wholesome.

Ingredients:

  • 8 small potatoes,  washed and cut into small chunks. Keep the skin on.
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 3 tomatoes, pureed
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Handful freshly chopped coriander to garnish

 

Method:

  1. In a saucepan filled with salted water, boil the potatoes for 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a kadai or wok, heat 2 tablespoons oil.
  3. Add the cumin seeds and when they sizzle, add the chopped red onions.
  4. Let the onions cook on low-medium heat for around 12 minutes, stirring every now and then. The longer you cook the onions the better.
  5. Now add the garlic, ginger and chopped green chillies. Let this cook for around 2 minutes, stirring it in well, and now add the pureed tomatoes. I like using fresh tomatoes rather than canned tomatoes as I like the flavour.
  6. Now add all the spices, salt and the boiled potatoes and mix well.
  7. Place the lid on the pan and let this cook for around 5 minutes.
  8. Give it a good stir and add the chopped coriander.
  9. Voila your potato curry is ready! Serve with fresh naan or rotis.
