Easy Potato Curry [+VIDEO]

I have a confession… I’m obsessed with curry (especially this easy potato curry version)! It’s one of my favorite things to make and I love how versatile it is!

On this particular day I was in the mood for a simple, but tasty meal (as always) that didn’t require a ton of effort.

Oh, and there had to be enough for leftovers to take to lunch the next day! That’s when I decided to whip up this easy potato curry. It’s so creamy, you could eat it alone or pair it with rice!

Tips for Making this Easy Potato Curry

In addition to the potatoes, I had to add in some additional veggies. Peas and carrots seemed like the perfect fit.

I opted for fresh carrots and frozen peas, but you could totally sub for a bag of frozen peas and carrots to help you save even more time. I already had carrots on hand, so I decided to go ahead and use them.

When dicing up your veggies, it’s important to make sure that they aren’t too big. Especially the potatoes. The larger you cut them, the more time it will take for them to cook.

I snagged a bag of Dutch Yellow Baby Potatoes from Trader Joe’s, so they were already pretty small to begin with.

I chopped them into four pieces, sometimes six if they were a bit larger. I’d say each piece was about an inch wide.

As for the carrots, it’s important to keep these pretty small, about the size of a pea. The thicker they are, the longer they will take to cook.

You don’t want to risk over-cooking everything else waiting for the carrots to cook through. They should be cooked through in about 10 minutes.

The cool thing about this Easy Potato Curry is that the “curry” is made with just a few ingredients.

Many of them you probably already have on hand! If by chance you don’t, you could definitely find the ingredients you need at most any grocery store.

I try to keep my recipes as accessible as possible, which means no hard to find ingredients!

There’s nothing worse than wanting to cook a meal you see online, but you can’t find all of the ingredients you need! I hate that and I know you probably do too!

Easy Potato Curry


My favorite part about this Easy Potato Curry is how creamy the curry turned out. It’s so good! In addition, I like having the option to eat it with or without rice.

The addition of cilantro is also something you can add based on your own preferences. I love cilantro, so I added about 2 tablespoons. If you’re not a fan, use it for garnish instead (or not at all).

    I just made this dish, on THE hottest day of the year, and it was so so so delicious. Very flavorful. I didn’t have garam Marsala, but I had a Moroccan seasoning that was similar. I also had a bunch of Swiss chars on hand, so I added that as well. My husband ate 2 giant servings. Thanks for sharing!

    This recipe couldn’t be easier to make, and the flavors played so well together. I loved how it used so many veggies, but was still really hearty and filling. Would make again!! 💛👏🏼

  6. Looking forward to trying this, but I’m allergic to tomatoes. Would I need to add in any additional liquid if I’m leaving out the can of tomatoes? Thanks!

    • Hey Jenny! Yes, I would definitely add more liquid to the mixture if you’re planning to leave out the tomatoes. I would start with around 1/3 cup of vegetable broth, then slowly add more as needed to get it to the right consistency. I hope you’ll come back and let me know how it goes!

    This is on regular rotation for dinner in my house. Sometimes I need to make slight adjustments like when I realize I’m out of fire roasted tomatoes! Nothing a lil extra pinch of cayenne can’t fix! Always turns out so good and is so comforting. May be one of my favorite things to make.

    Delicious and so easy! I added some chickpeas because I had an open can. Will definitely make it again.

    Made this tonight and my family LOVED it!

  11. Honestly there is so much junk on the screen It is extremely difficult to read anything. I can’t even see what I’m typing. Too many ads, Facebook buttons, etc. I am sure your recipe is lovely, but it’s too frustrating to read one or 2 lines at a time.

    • Hey Kate, thanks so much for checking out my work! I’m not the biggest fan of ads either, but the revenue it generates helps to keep my content free for everyone. Running a food blog costs more than what you might imagine. I hope that you can find the patience to scroll down to the recipe card and try out this meal, it’s delish! If you try it, lmk how it goes!

    This recipe was excellent! I wanted to double it but only had one can of coconut milk. I used oat milk and veggie broth as a replacement for the second can and it was still amazing! Thank you for such a delicious and easy recipe.

    I made this meal two nights ago and it is gone today! It was such a success! I made the dish with coconut oil instead of the milk because I didn’t have it at the house. But, I will be trying coconut milk in the future! Loved it. It was so good!

    This was wonderful. Everything I had already but the peas. Quick & easy but full of flavor. I am making meals for my elderly parents that they can eat for a few days-they loved it! I served it with jasmine rice and some naan bread but quinoa would be good too.

    So i just happened to stumble upon your website. I found the potato curry recipe, made it tonight and it was awesome! My better half is vegan but i am not so meal planning has been crazy. Your website has lit a spark in me and i am so beyond thankful for you!!!

    I really want to make this tonight, it looks delicious, but the store near me didn’t have fire roasted tomatoes. Can I replace them with something or just omit them, or will I be losing out on too much flavor? Thanks!

    • Hi Sonia, I’ve never tried it without the tomatoes and couldn’t imagine this dish without them! If you can’t find fire roasted ones, regular canned diced tomatoes would work or even chopped fresh tomatoes (about 2 cups). If you try it either way, lmk how it goes!
