Potato Curry
A deliciously quick and simple potato curry to enjoy hot or cold.

 

THINGS YOU NEED:

4 medium white potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons water
1 handful fresh cilantro

FROM THE SPICE BOX:

1 tablespoon cumin seeds
½ teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon ground cumin & coriander
½ teaspoon chili powder*
 
*Note: if you prefer a hotter spice level 
increase the amount of chili powder by ¼ teaspoon increments to suit your taste. Be cautious!

ESSENTIAL PREPARATION:

  • Peel and dice the potatoes into approximately ½ inch cubes
  • Lightly chop the cilantro
  • Prepare everything else from the Things You Need section so that all ingredients are at hand and you are ready to cook

COOKING GUIDE:

  1. Heat the oil in the pan so it’s hot and then add the cumin seeds and let it sizzle for about 30 seconds.
  2. Add the potatoes, salt, turmeric powder, chili powder and ground cumin & coriander. Stir it thoroughly and simmer for a minute or two.
  3. Add the water, stir it well then put the lid on and let it simmer for 25 minutes on a low heat. Keep checking just in case it sticks. If so, you may need to add a little more water, stir it each time. Do not overcook – once the potatoes are cooked through the dish is ready.
  4. Serve and lightly garnish with cilantro.
  5. Suggested serving accompaniments include plain yogurt, rice or salad and non gluten free options such as pita bread.
