Dry Potato And Pea Curry

Quick, delicious and uses up those last few red potatoes sitting in the bin.

From Curry And Chilli Cookbook

You Will Need:

2 tablespoons ghee
2 onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 1/2 pounds potatoes, cubed small
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup green peas
2 tablespoons chopped mint

Heat ghee, onion, garlic and ginger in a large pot and cook until onion is soft. Add the turmeric, chili powder, cumin, garam masala and potato. Stir until potato is coated with spices and add salt and pepper to taste. Add the water and simmer, covered for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add the peas, stir well and cover again. Cook another five minutes or until the potatoes are soft and the liquid is absorbed. Stir in the mint and adjust salt and pepper if needed.
