Super Simple Potato Curry [Vegan]

If you enjoy recipes like this, we highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App, it's available for both Android and iPhone and has free and paid versions. The app is loaded with thousands of allergy-friendly & vegan recipes/cooking tips, has hundreds of search filters and features like bookmarking, meal plans and more! The app shows you how having diet/health/food preferences can be full of delicious abundance rather than restrictions!

It takes about 5 minutes to prepare this dish and then you just have to wait 20 minutes for it all to get hot and the potatoes to get soft. Basically, you cut the potatoes and then dump everything in a large sauce pan and simmer. Not quite as simple as throwing a pizza in the oven, but pretty damn close. This recipe is also extremely cheap to make and can feed the masses. I would double the serving if you have more than 2 or 3 people as I guarantee they will go back for seconds.

I substituted olive oil for coconut oil, cow\'s milk and a little bit of yogurt for coconut milk and honey for maple syrup, as I couldn\'t find any of those ingredients in my local supermarket or I found them and they were too pricey, so it was vegetarian and not vegan... Also put in some green beans I had instead of peas and added a dash of cayenne and garlic powder. It turned out amazing! It might be the absence of coconut flavor but I didn\'t find it too sweet at all, it was just perfect. Will def be making this again, my husband didn\'t try it because of a stomach flu he had so next time I will be doubling the quantities!

I forgot to mention that I cooked the potatoes on their own until al dente then added to sauce and cooked until potatoes were soft and flavorful. The finished product was lovely.

You know, that would have been REALLY HELPFUL to read in the recipe, and not the comments. You also did not say how small to cut up the potatoes.

I have never tried curry but I am looking to expand my vegan recipe library so I thought I would give this a go. The only doctoring I did was add in one sweet potato in replace of two of the small potatoes. This recipe was super easy to follow and turned out fricken delicious! Everyone in my house scarfed it down. I will definitely make again but next time I will double the batch.

this is a pretty good recipe! the one thing i\'d say though is that it\'s a bit bland if you\'re not white or just like stronger flavours. i used a scotch bonnet pepper instead, twice the garlic, more salt and a table spoon of masala i made using coriandre, cumin, cloves, fenugreek seeds, and mustard seeds...

" it\\\'s a bit bland if you\\\'re not white"

Great recipe, easy to follow and has become a staple in my house. Tonight i swapped out the potatoes and added eggplant (aubergine) and chickpeas. This is super easy and the whole family loves it :)
thank you

How much grams of quantity is this "1 13.66 ounce" of coconut milk ? Thanks a lot!!

27 Mar 2017

Its a standard can :) its 390 grams
I think you may have read it as 113.66 however it is meant to read 1x 13.66oz can of ...

Really did not enjoy this. I had to doctor it with several more Indian spices because it was just waaay too sweet. I also really wish there had been pictures of the cooking process. I ended up having to switch from cooking it in a big soup pot to a tiny 5 cup sized pot because there was no way the potatoes would have cooked in something more spread out, and that was pretty annoying. Keep in mind that the broth you\'re cooking the potatoes in is only a can\'s worth of coconut milk. I ended up cutting 4 small to medium sized potatoes, but only about 1 really should go in. I had to use the rest up and spend more time making mashed potatoes. Without adding more spices it tasted very sweet and didn\'t have much flavor. I made brown rice to go with this, and all in all this took me 2 hours before I could eat, from start to finish.
