Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.
Another recipe I found on pinterest that I changed a bit to make it easier to make and added a few extra veggies. I named it potato curry as that’s the main ingredient, although I also call it potatoes soup as a joke sometimes as it’s a pretty fluid curry. It’s an curry that doesn’t require too many ingredients and it quick to prepare. I like how the potatoes really absorb the flavour of the curry.
This recipe is based on Maayeka her Dahi ke Aloo recipe.
- Potatoes – 4-6
- Red Bell Pepper – 2
- Onion – 1
- Low Salt Bouillon Cubes – 2
- Yoghurt/ curd/ coconut milk- 1 cup
- Bay Leaf – 2-3
- Coriander powder – 2 teaspoons
- Ginger powder – 2 teaspoons
- Turmeric Powder – 2 teaspoons
- Cumin Powder – 2 teaspoons
- Fenugreek – 1 teaspoon
- Mustard Seeds/ powder – 1 teaspoon
- Fennel seeds – 1/2 teaspoon
- Cayenne pepper – 1/2 teaspoon
- Olive Oil
This recipe feed about 3 till 4 people. You can serve this with rice, naan or any other type of bread.
- Slice and dice the potatoes and cook for 10 minutes.
- In the meantime slice and dice the onion and red bell peppers.
- Add some olive oil, the onion and the Fenugreek seeds to a wok or pan and bake till the onion is translucent.
- Then add the red bell peppers and a bit of water. Bake for a few minutes.
- Combine the spices in a small bowl. Add the coconut milk, they bay leaves and the spices to the wok and stir well.
- Once the potatoes are done cooking, remove them from the fire and drain. Then roughly mash them, it’s okay if there are a few bigger pieces left.
- Now add the potatoes to the wok and stir well. Let it boil for a few more minutes.
- Enjoy your potatoes curry!
- Vary with Veggies. The recipe I based this on didn’t add onion or red bell pepper, so you can remove those if you want. Or add any other veggies you prefer.
This looks very tasty. I must admit I have never eaten Curry before. I know.. Stupid. This recipe doesn’t look to complicated though.. I think I need to give it a try sometimes. Thanks for tip 😉

I love curries and make them quite frequently. This one is a good one to start with if you haven’t made any curries before. I hope you’ll give it a try!
I love curry and I love potatoes so I’m definitely trying this. I’ll probably add mushrooms too as they are my fav veggie. I usually serve curry with rice but I like Naan bread too. Thanks Lola, it sounds delicious and I can’t wait to try it!

That’s the reaosn why I wanted to try this curry in the first place. Potatoes in curries work really well with how they absorb the flavour. I am sure mushrooms would work great in this curry. I don’t like mushrooms, so I never add them myself. I love naan, although I usually serve curries with rice as that’s easier to make than naan. Let me know how it turns out when you give it a try 🙂
My mouth just watered. I actually just ate Chicken Curry bread from Breadtalk. The curry was so spicy inside the bread. I will have to try this recipe!

Curry inside a break, that sounds delicious! I usually make my curries flavourfull, but not too spicy as I don’t deal well with spicy food. You can always add some chili or more cayenne pepper if you want to make one of these recipes spicier.
That looks really good. I don’t think I’ve ever had anything like that before.

It’s a great curry! It’s really soft and filled with potatoes.

I’ve found that potatoes are good at absorbing and taking on the flavor of spices and they really help thicken things nicely.

Indeed, that’s exactly what the potatoes do in this recipe. They make the curry a bit thicker and nicely absorb all the flavours.
Oh that looks yummy! I haven’t had a good curry in ages. I’m putting this on my make in the near future list.

Me too, I love me some potatoes and they are just so good in curries with how they absorb the flavour and pefectly blend into the dish.
you feature the best recipes here, Lola! I love curry to begin with, but since I eat meat, I’ll add either chicken or fish to this 😀

Thanks! I am glad you like my recipe posts :). To most recipes you can add any meat you want, chicken or fish probably works best in curries.
Mmmm, I love potato curry! Actually I love most vegetable curries so this is an easy one for me to drool over. 🙂 I bet this would be great with some naan, too.

Same here, I like most vegetable curries and I am always willing to try out a new vegetable curry, this one was a hit with the potatoes. I think I made naan as sidedish with this once and it was a great combination indeed.
My mouth just watered. So yummyyyyyyy, so delicious. I will have to try this recipe!
Thanks! I hope you give it a try. I really like this dish.
