Spicy Indian Potato Curry – Expert Edition

by | Mar 25, 2023 | Baking | 0 comments

When I was a kid, my mom would make a simple potato curry for dinner. It wasn’t spicy, but it was rich and flavorful. I remember her stirring the curry and smelling the aromatic spices. I would sit in the kitchen and watch her cook, and it was always a special time for us.

Fast-forward to today, and I am making my own version of the potato curry. I’ve added a few of my own touches and made it a bit spicier, but it still has that same warmth and flavor that I remember from my childhood.

This Spicy Indian Potato Curry is a great comfort food. It’s hearty, flavorful, and easy to make. Serve it with a dollop of yogurt and a sprig of cilantro for a truly delicious meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

  • You can adjust the level of spiciness by adding more or less cayenne pepper.
  • To make this curry vegan, substitute the vegetable oil for a vegan-friendly oil like coconut or avocado oil.
  • You can use any variety of potatoes for this curry, but I recommend using a starchy variety like russet.
