Potato curry is an easy, vegan friendly recipe. This is a quick and healthy Indian inspired curry which is perfect drizzled with a speedy yoghurt sauce.
Carbs on carbs...that's how we're doing things today 😍
Actually, it was technically carbs on carbs on carbs when we ate this because we had the potato, the rice and Will made naan. Sometimes it's just worth being that full.
The curry has a rich and creamy sauce helped along by a drizzle of honey for sweetness (but you can totally use maple syrup for a vegan version) and a tin of coconut milk.
I used baby potatoes in this which are cooked in the sauce until perfectly tender. Although they take about 25 minutes to cook you can leave the whole thing to simmer and just check back once in a while to make sure it's not sticking so most of the cook time is actually hands off.
Why we love this recipe...
This recipe is easy to make and is mostly hands off while the potatoes cook which gives you time to make some rice or whatever else you fancy serving it with.
It's vegetarian and is easy to make vegan with a few simple switches like adding maple syrup instead of honey and using a plant based yoghurt.
This curry is great for batch cooking and using for meal prep because it lasts really well in the fridge.
You can make this curry as spicy or mild as you like by controlling the amount of chilli flakes you use. I went for just a pinch but feel free to add more.

Spices: Ginger, garlic, garam masala, bay leaf and chilli flakes all go into this curry to make it super flavourful.
Honey: This adds a hint of sweetness. Switch to maple syrup to keep it vegan.
Chopped Tomatoes: Just go for your favourite brand.
Coconut Milk: I prefer to use full fat coconut milk in my recipes to make them extra creamy.
Baby Potatoes: I halve the big ones so they're all the same size.
Greek Yoghurt Sauce: This is a simple mixture of yoghurt, salt and water which gets it just the right texture for drizzling.
How to make it
Fry the aromatics: Heat the oil and fry the onion then add the ginger and garlic followed by the spices. Drizzle in the honey and cook for another minute.
Simmer the curry: Pour in the tomatoes and coconut milk and simmer for 10 minutes then add the potatoes and cook for about 25 minutes until the potatoes and cooked through.
Finish the curry: Mix together the yoghurt, salt and a drop of water. Drizzle the curry with the sauce and serve.
