Spicy Potato Curry

We love curry, but prefer to create our own blend of spices. Paired with the coconut milk, they help create a fiery yet sweet potato curry. If you like your curry really hot, feel free to amp up the cayenne pepper!

Spicy Potato Curry

4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp turmeric
2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (Increase for more heat)
1 can (2 cups) organic chick peas, rinsed and drained
1 can (398 mL) coconut milk
1/4 cup tomato sauce
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1. Place peeled and chopped potatoes into a medium-sized pot. Cover potatoes with salted water. Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes until potatoes are tender. Drain.

5. Add the potatoes and chickpeas. Sir in the tomato sauce and fresh lemon juice.
