Hi, Ray here again.
I was browsing through the great range of vegetarian curry recipes on the Curry Focus website looking for a curry to make this weekend. I eat a lot of vegetarian curries as well as non-vegetarian ones. Usually I go for a dal recipe but thought that I would give some other type of vegetarian recipe a try. And my eyes landed on the Potato and Spinach Curry recipe. Yes, this is the one. It looks very easy to make so this reinforced my selection – I like easy recipes because they make my random cooking abilities look good. And this is a cheap curry to make as well, which is a bonus. And I love potato.
And shopping for this curry recipe was really easy because all I had to do was get some spinach and curry leaves since I had everything else already.
Making this curry was a breeze. I boiled the potatoes until they were ready, fried the spice seeds, onions and curry leaves, added the previously cooked potatoes, added the spices and then added the chopped up spinach. I started up the microwave to cook the basmati not long after the onions went into the frying pan so everything came together at the same time.
The curry did get very dry near the end so I kept adding a little water as soon as it dried out – the water quickly evaporated so more was then added – I added the water a little at a time so that the curry would definitely be a dry curry when the cooking was finished.
I served up the Potato and Spinach Curry on the basmati rice.
And how was the curry? It was great. I love potato (did I say that before?) and this curry was lovely. Everything was well cooked (it really had to be seeing that there were hardly any ingredients that needed a whole lot of cooking) and the curry was nice and dry. And the curry was a surprising mixture of white, yellow and green colours – I would have expected something a bit more drab.
The curry received a great taste score of 8 out of 10 with a spice/heat level of “Medium”.
This is a really easy curry make and it is really tasty. Why not test-drive the recipe for yourself?
