Vegan Potato Curry

2013-12-18 19.26.45
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on your taste–I’m a wuss)
  • 4 tsp curry powder
  • 4 tsp garam masala
  • 1 in piece fresh ginger root, peeled and minced (a mini food processor is amazing for this)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained (15 oz)
  • 1 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • 1 can coconut milk (14 oz)
  • 1/2 cup dried currants or raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews, optional

Instructions

1. Put the potatoes in a pot of salted water and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to keep at a simmer and cook until just tender–about 15 minutes.  Drain them and let them steam dry for a bit.
2. While the potatoes are cooking, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes, or until translucent.  Add the cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, garam masala,  ginger, and salt.  Cook for 2 minutes more.  Add the tomatoes, garbanzo beans, peas, and potatoes. Add the coconut milk, dried fruit, and cashews (if using) and bring to a simmer for 5-10 minutes.  Serve with some naan.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
