This easy yellow curry dish is a spicy and delicious meal that can be enjoyed throughout the week. Each batch makes about 6 hearty servings. While this version is vegetarian, the dish also tastes great with chicken, if you would like to add some protein. Prep time takes about 20-30 minutes and cooking time is about 30 minutes also. The recipe itself is adapted from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/spicy-vegan-potato-curry/. Instead of chickpeas, we used carrots and we also altered the spices and spiciness of the dish to be a little less spicy. Hope you all will enjoy this tasty ethic dish!
3 Large baking potatoes
2 tablespoon Grapeseed oil (or 1 cup vegetable broth for a more low fat dish)
1/2 a large spanish onion
1 (14.5 ounce) can of diced tomatoes
2.5 cups of peas
2 cups of chopped carrots
3 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pepper
1.5 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 (14 ounce) can of coconut milk
Optional: Prepare 3-4 cups of uncooked jasmine rice to go with the dish
1) Wash and dice the potatoes before putting them into a large pot to boil with the carrots. Add just a sprinkle of salt to the water and make sure the the water covers the potatoes and carrots. After bringing the water to a boil, turn the heat down to low, medium-low. Let the pot simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft before draining the water and putting to the side.
2) While your potatoes and carrots are cooking, add your 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil or 1 cup of vegetable broth to a large skillet or dutch oven over high heat. Chop up the onion and mince the garlic. Add it to the oil or broth. Once the onions begin to brown add the all of the spices, seasonings, peas, tomatoes, and coconut milk. Stir occasionally until the mixture is boiling. Turn down to low heat and simmer until the potatoes and carrots are ready to be added to the mixture. Simmer everything together for 2-3 more minutes and then enjoy by itself or over rice.
