Curried Potato Salad
If you know me you will know I love curry!! Indian, West Indian, Thai curry, red, yellow, green curry & more! What is curry? It's really just a name given to different spices mixed up. I have an earlier post about curried veggies with shrimp. The best curry is freshly ground & for a while I always made it & never bought it already ground. I have a recipe book of 660 curries, but hardly every followed it exactly. I would lightly roast whole spices, then cool & grind. I use store bought curry powder for a more basic curry recipes because not everyone in my family likes my spice combos. I like it a little spicier then most. This is a pretty basic recipe.
8 medium potatoes peel or not. I semi peeled, cubed then boiled & cooled
2 small to medium onions (I used yellow) quartered then sliced.
2 carrots, peeled then chopped
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon or more of grated ginger (optional)
1 cup of frozen peas added after I cooked onions & carrots so not to over cook
2 tablespoons of curry powder
2 heaping tablespoons of Mayo
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil for frying veggies
You can use other veggies or things such as cilantro, raisins, chick peas or what ever veggie you might like. I semi peeled the potatoes, cut, then boiled in salted water. I think I over cooked mine, but it still tasted great.
I then sautéed the chopped onion, carrot, garlic & grated ginger in 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Then I added the curry powder, & frozen peas. I then sort let cool.
Mixed in 2 tablespoons of Mayo with potatoes & then added curried sautéed veggies.
Then put in fridge to cool! Voila yum!
