Spicy Vegan Potato Curry Recipe

Abundant spices make this better than any restaurant curry I’ve tasted.


4 potatoes, peeled and cubed                                                                4 teaspoons garam masala

2 tablespoons vegetable oil                                                                      1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger root, peeled and                                                                                                                                      minced

1 yellow onion, diced                                                                               2 teaspoons salt

3 cloves garlic, minced                                                                            1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

2 teaspoons ground cumin                                                                        1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas),                                                                                                                                     rinsed and drained

1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper                                                            1 (15 ounce) can peas, drained

4 teaspoons curry powder                                                                       1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, garam masala, ginger, and salt; cook for 2 minutes more. Add the tomatoes, garbanzo beans, peas, and potatoes. Pour in the coconut milk, and bring to a simmer. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes before serving.



Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
