Potato Dry Curry
Potatoes get a bad rap for packing a lot of carbs, but it is one of the best vegetables you can enjoy in winter and they bring a lot more than just starch to the table. Todayâ€™s recipe as you can guess from the title is all about Potatoes. It is one of my favorites among potato recipes just because it is super easy to prepare and packs a lot of spicy flavors.
Potatoes come in various colors and I have found that red potatoes work very well for this recipe. The other main ingredient(s) are the spices that compliment the potatoes. I just cut the potatoes into little round pieces. You can slice them as thin as you prefer. Just make sure that they get an even exposure to the spices.
Talking of spices, there are not many of them, and for that reason, you cannot skip any of it to retain the authentic flavor. You can perhaps tone down on the red chilies but do not skip all of it. The subtle heat from chilies and spices are beautifully balanced by the grated coconuts. Make this vegan, gluten-free recipe a part of your meal plan and prepare it on a busy weekday!
This is not the first potato recipe and certainly not the last one either. If you are looking for a specific recipe or need a suggestion for more recipes, feel free to contact me at this link.
