Original recipe yields 6 servings



  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, garam masala, ginger, and salt; cook for 2 minutes more. Add the tomatoes, garbanzo beans, peas, and potatoes. Pour in the coconut milk, and bring to a simmer. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

I made this recipe EXACTLY as stated, and it came out so much better than I imagined it would! I thought it would be cheap and cheerful, and useful as a side to something, but it is absolutely delicious! The combination of spices is completely spot on, giving a very rich and authentic flavour, with a good amount of spicyness, but not enough to hurt! Of course it tastes better the next day, as any curry does. The only things I would change in this recipe when I next make it (As I definitely shall), is that I will increase the amount of potatoes by at least 50%, to six or seven potatoes, and use only an 8oz can of chickpeas. The curry as it is, is more like a chickpea curry with potatoes, but I'd like potatoes to be the main feature. I think this curry would be very good too with spinach in it, instead of the peas, although its great as it is! ps. Im neither vegan nor vegetarian.



I am almost embarrassed to tell everyone what I did to this recipe because of the lack of all of the ingredients... but I had to share because it turned out so well!! It all started with the potatoes I needed to use up... when I came across this yummy sounding recipe. I had no onions in the house, but I did have dried chopped onion, so I rehydrated them... I had no fresh garlic in the house, so I used the minced stuff in the jar (never as good as fresh, imho)... I had no fresh ginger, so I used ginger paste... I had no canned diced toms, but I did have tom paste... I had no coconut milk, but did have coconut milk powder to reconstitute... I was infinitely surprised to have a can of peas, since I really don't care for canned peas at all (where did THOSE come from??). In spite of all of my creative yet irreverent adjustments, this is one of the best curries I have ever tasted!



This was very flavorful and had a great texture. I omitted the chickpeas and added cauliflower, which I steamed over the boiling potatoes. I agree with other reviewers that this could have used more potatoes; it's pretty saucy. I wasn't in the mood for super spicy, so I used 1 tsp cayenne. I also reduced the curry to 1 tbsp, which was just right for us. Excellent over brown rice!
