Easy Potato Curry

I have a confession… I’m obsessed with curry! 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 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!

Enjoy!

My favorite part about this dish 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!
