Bombay Potatoes and Peas
- 2 teaspoons safflower oil - organic, or other organic neutral oil
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 1 small red onion - finely chopped
- 1 large tomato - coarsely chopped
- 7 cloves garlic
- 1 1-inch [3cm] knob fresh ginger - peeled and coarsely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne - you can use up to 1/2 teaspoon
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala - or more to taste
- 3 medium Yukon gold potatoes - cut into 1/2-inch [1cm] pieces
- 1 teaspoon salt - or more to taste
- 1 cup water - or more as needed
- 1 cup peas - fresh or thawed frozen peas
- 1/4 cup cilantro - finely chopped
- lemon juice - fresh to taste (optional)
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add the cumin and mustard seeds. Cook until the cumin seeds change color, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the onion and cook until it is translucent, 5 to 6 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a blender, blend the tomato, garlic, and ginger into a coarse puree.
- Add the tomato mixture, turmeric, cayenne, coriander, ground cumin, and garam masala to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the puree thickens and the garlic is fragrant, 5 to 6 minutes.
- Add the potatoes, salt, and water. Cover the skillet and cook for 10 to 11 minutes.
- Add the peas. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for another 10 to 12 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked to your preference.
- Add additional water if the potatoes start to stick or if you prefer more curry. Add the cilantro and lemon juice (if using).
Add some other vegetables or cooked chickpeas to make it a meal. This recipe also works well with sweet potatoes.
Isn't that great! I want to make every recipe out of this cookbook and I bet you will too. Everything is plant based - we are so lucky!
