Potato Curry Recipe

This is a classic modern British curry recipe for a vegetarian curry of potatoes, onions and peas in a fairly lightly spiced tomato and vegetable stock base.

Potato Curry

Serves: 4


4 tbsp vegetable oil
675g (1 1/2 lbs) waxy potatoes (eg Charlottes), scrubbed and cut into large chunks
2 onions, quartered
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
3cm (1 in) piece of fresh ginger root, grated
1 red chilli, chopped
225g cauliflower florets
4 tomatoes, peeled and quartered
75g frozen peas
2 tbsp fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves
300ml (1 1/4 cups) vegetable stock
fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves, shredded, to garnish


Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or heavy-based saucepan. When hot, add the potato chunks, onion and garlic. Fry the mixture gently for between 2 and 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Scatter over the garam masala, turmeric, ground coriander seeds, grated ginger and chopped chilli. Mix the spices with the vegetables and fry for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Add the cauliflower florets, tomatoes, peas, chopped coriander (cilantro) and vegetable stock to the curry. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook gently over low heat for about 35 minutes, or until the potatoes are completely tender.

Turn into a warmed dish, garnish with the shredded coriander (cilantro) leaves and accompany with plain boiled rice or a warm naan bread.
