Potato Curry with Peas and Carrots

Potato Curry with Peas and Carrots Recipe
I made up this potato curry with peas and carrots recipe after receiving the Curry Lover's Gift Box in the mail just after Christmas, and then posted it on my food blog, The Alchemist. It's cheap, uses ingredients commonly on-hand in the pantry, and came out so rich and delicious that it's going to be a staple recipe now!

Preparation Instructions:

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. When hot, add the hot curry powder and stir it around for 30 seconds. Add the onions to the pan and saute until they are tender and a bit golden. When you’re there, add the carrots, potatoes, and minced garlic.

  2. Give it all a good stir, and then add about a half cup each of water and coconut milk. Stir in the turmeric, salt, and coriander. Reduce the heat to low and cover it. Check every so often to stir the pot and check the moisture level.

  3. When the moisture is almost all absorbed, add more coconut milk and water, in equal parts. Continue to cook, stir, and add liquid until the vegetables are very tender and the curry is nice and thick. At this point, taste it to check that the spice levels are where you like them.

  4. When you’re there, stir in the peas and the rest of the coconut milk (and water if necessary), and cook it for another 3 minutes or so, until the peas are heated through and the curry thickens up again. Serve over brown rice. Makes 4 generous servings.

The coconut milk, while a delicious, rich and creamy addition, can be replaced with water or a flavorful broth, if desired. For additional pictures and the story behind the recipe, visit The Alchemist Blog

Delicious! I doubled it (we love leftovers) and used roasted cauliflower instead of carrots, but otherwise we cooked this as directed. I see this as a curry that could be made with various veggies. Next time, we will probably use spinach or kale instead of peas but the peas WERE good in it. Thank you for this recipe!


Made this last night; it was delicious! The curry sauce was a bit thin after reducing, so I added another 1/2 tbsp of curry powder and it thickened right up!

Also added about 1tsp of Cumin and 1/4 tsp of Summer Savory, and used heavy cream instead of coconut milk.

I replace the Tbsp hot curry powder with 1 Tbsp mild curry powder and also add a scant Tbsp of garam masala with potatoes, carrots, etc. This dish is one of my family’s favorites. I make quick couscous on the side and we have an easy, complete meal that tastes great and the kids love! Thank you!!!

My family and I love this meal and we eat it almost every week. We like that it has magnesium containing potato and carrots and we use organic spices that are very health beneficial and so to is the coconut cream we use. We add lots of spinach instead of peas and avoid rice as it depletes magnesium.. A 5* recipe.

Needed more salt and other spices, after adding extra and putting it on top of jasmine rice it tasted pretty good.

Can’t you grind your necessary spices and other ingredients rather
than use ordinary curry powder?
