Canned Potato Curry
This potato curry is simple, comforting and so easy to make with store cupboard ingredients. Absolutely delicious and no need for a trip to the shops.
Servings: 2 people
- 2 tsp vegetable oil
- 1 small onion - peeled and diced
- 1 clove garlic - peeled and chopped
- ½ chilli (red or green) - peeled and diced
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tbs fresh coriander/cilantro - or more to taste
- 180 g canned salad potatoes – drained and rinsed - one small can
- 250 ml coconut milk - 1 cup
If using fresh potatoes - peel, cut into bit sized pieces and simmer in lightly salted water for 10 minutes. Drain and set to one side.
Put the oil in a pan or skillet. Fry the onion and garlic with a pinch of salt over a medium heat until translucent.
Add the spices and the chopped coriander/cilantro stalks and leaves. Cook for a minute until fragrant, stirring all the time.
Add the potatoes and fry for another minute, making sure they are well coated with the spices.
Pour over the coconut milk and cook over a low heat for 5–10 minutes until thickened, stirring from time to time.
The curry is ready when the sauce is thickened and golden yellow, and the potatoes are soft.
- My potato curry is very easy to make entirely from store cupboard ingredients. See my detailed notes above for more information.
- Any curry is far better made in advance. Even letting it sit for an hour improves the flavour. Alternatively, keep it in the fridge overnight.
- If you are using fresh potatoes, try to choose a waxy salad potato. They are less likely to fall to pieces with longer cooking.
- This curry is mild but also full of flavour. If you prefer something with more kick, add extra heat to your taste.
- A squeeze of lemon or lime juice will brighten and lift the flavours.
- To make this go further, add a can of drained and rinsed chickpeas.
