30 cl of coconut cream.
1 tablespoon of turmeric powder.

Cooking potatoes

To prepare the coconut cream potato curry, I recommend pre-cooking the potatoes in boiling water or steaming them.

1- Wash and peel the potatoes. If the skin is very thin, like on some new potatoes, you can simply scrape it off.

2- Cut the potatoes into large cubes.

3- Steam the potato pieces for 15 minutes.
The potatoes should be tender but not too soft.

Preparation of ingredients

While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the other ingredients for this vegetarian curry.

1- Chop the garlic and onion together.

2- Wash the tomato and dice it.

3- Heat a small pan without adding any fat, and toast the sliced almonds over medium heat, stirring constantly. As soon as the almonds are golden, turn off the heat.

Note: These toasted and roasted almonds will be used to garnish the plates of potato curry with coconut cream.

Roasting of spices

To enhance the flavor of the coconut cream potato curry, I recommend toasting the spices, which means heating them in the pan.

1- Heat the sunflower oil over high heat in a large pan.

2- Add the chopped garlic and onion, along with a pinch of salt and the various powdered spices.

3- Heat for about one minute over high heat, stirring, until the spices release their fragrance. This toasting step helps bring out the aromas and taste of the spices.

Cooking Potato Curry

Once the spices are roasted, cooking the curry is quite quick.

1- Add the precooked potato pieces and mix.

2- Pour in the coconut cream, mix gently, then reduce the heat.

3- Add the peas and fresh tomato cubes and mix again.

4- Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes on low heat, adjusting the seasoning with salt if necessary.

5- Just before serving, sprinkle the potato curry with coconut cream with freshly chopped coriander.

Tasting Tips

1- Serve the coconut cream potato curry piping hot.

2- Sprinkle each plate with a generous pinch of toasted sliced almonds.

Note: This tip not only adds the finishing touch to the decoration of this Indian-inspired dish but also brings some crunch.
