Mushroom & potato curry

My sister likes to go meat free on some days, so she requested a mushroom curry. I thought why not bulk it up a bit and make mushroom and potato curry instead. Simple, tasty and well...vegetarians.

  • Skill level: Easy
  • Serves:  6 people
  • Prep time: 15 mins
  • Cooking time: 40 mins
What you will need:

2 tbsp vegetable oil
4 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 inch ginger, peeled and chopped
8 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 green chilli, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
3/4 tbsp garam masala
3 curry leaves (or 1/2 tsp curry powder)
1 tbsp salt
2 tomato, chopped
500g mushrooms, wiped with a damp cloth and sliced
4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup water
(I also added 4 tbsp yoghurt because I tasted it and it was too hot)
Optional: coriander chopped for garnish

How to make:

1) Heat the vegetable oil in a pot, then add the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli. Cook until the onions change colour

2) Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala, curry, and salt. Cook for a few minutes, then add the tomatoes and cook until tomatoes mash (5-10 mins)

3) Add the mushrooms and potatoes and mix well to coat, then add the water and leave on medium heat until the potatoes are cooked 

4) Taste and adjust to taste (at this point, I removed some of the curry sauce and added 4 tbsp of yoghurt to it, mixed it then added it back into the pot - to reduce the heat of the curry and avoid the yoghurt curdling)

Serve with rice, or bread. I also made a salad and used plenty of yoghurt on the side. Enjoy :))
