I wish I knew more about cooking with the spices from India. This dish is my first attempt at a curry. My taster said that it was not as spicy as the Indian restaurants. From the food that vanished off his plate, that was a good thing. Although, I love the spicy flavor in Indian cuisine. If you know how to make this recipe more authentic, send me your secret.
Plus, I wanted to share a Raita recipe with you to go along with my Naan bread. However, my attempt was a fail. I tried with fresh cashews, and next time I’ll use vegan plain yogurt. If you cook a lot then you know, like with any art, there are sometimes failures. Mistakes are how an artist grows.
Vegan Potato Curry Recipe
- 2 Pounds of Organic Golden Potatoes (skinned and cut into bite size pieces)
- 1 Tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Medium Diced Onion
- 4 Cloves of Minced Garlic
- 2 Teaspoons of Cumin
- 1 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
- 1 Teaspoon of Garam Masala
- 4 Teaspoons of Curry Powder (Mine was Mild)
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Ginger Powder
- 1 Teaspoon of Pepper
- 1 Teaspoon of Salt
- 14 Ounce Can of diced Tomato
- 10 Ounce Bag of Organic Frozen Peas and Carrots
- 1 Package of Gardein Beefless Crumbles
- 1 Can of Coconut Milk
In a microwave-safe bowl place crumbles and frozen vegetables and cook for five to six minutes.
Place peeled and cut potatoes in a large pot with water that covers them. When the potatoes begin to boil, set the timer for fifteen minutes. When the potatoes are finished cooking drain them in a colander.
While potatoes cook take a large pan and add extra virgin olive oil, onions, and garlic and cook on medium for five minutes. Then add all your spices. (I gather up all my spices before cooking and add them all at once.) Stir to mix in with onion and garlic.
Then add tomatoes, crumbles, vegetables, and combine.
Add coconut milk, and turn up the heat to medium-high. Once the mixture is heated, turn down the temperature to low and add potatoes. Gently mix everything. Careful not to break potatoes. Serve over cooked rice.
