  1. Puree the onion and carrots in a food processor or blender until finely ground. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the garlic until fragrant and lightly browned. Pour in the carrot puree, bring to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour in diced tomatoes, water, yam, red potatoes, and cauliflower. Season with turmeric, curry powder, cumin, garam masala, cayenne, and red pepper flakes. Simmer until potatoes are soft, about 30 minutes.

Not impressed with this recipe--it's incredibly bland! I've tried this recipe twice and been disappointed both times. Adding salt is an option for creating some taste but i try to avoid adding...

At first it tasted a little bland. Also many said it wasn't hot so I made it as dinner for all including 13 month old son. It was a little too spicy for him and for me it was a bit spicy. My ...

This was pretty good. It was missing something so I added a bit of salt and some raisins from Trader Joe's (jumbo raisin medley). I served this with a seared salmon curry dish from this site, h...

Ok, but missing something... Family was definitely missing the meat, will stick with coconut curry
