Recipe of the Day: Spicy Potato & Haricot Vert Curry

Happy Hump Day! Although it’s a short work week, it definitely feels like it’s dragging. Ugh! I can’t wait for the weekend; hubbz and I are off to Ohio for a family wedding. I had ordered a saree online from India, pre-stitched since I really can’t put a saree on, despite several YouTube tutorials for the modern day “ABCD,” but it hasn’t arrived yet (major ugh!). This means *back up shalwar kameez to the rescue* will have to suffice. Anyways, the sun was finally out today and I decided to make a staple vegetarian dish that my mom always makes. I totally can’t remember how to say “beans” in Urdu/Hindu, so let’s call this:

Spicy Potato & Haricot Vert Curry

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 small roasting potatoes, white (or your favorite kind), peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups Haricot Vert (French green beans)
  • 1 oz ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 cup water
  • salt to taste

Note: You can get the ginger-garlic paste and curry powder at your local Indian store.

Fry onion in oil until brown. Then add ginger-garlic paste, stir, and add potatoes. Add water, curry powder, and cover to boil until potatoes are done, about 10 minutes. Add chopped tomato, and tomato paste, let cook about 2 minutes. Add French green beans and salt, cover and let cook 5-7 minutes. And you’re done!

Serve with basmati rice or roti/naan.

Total cooking time: 20 minutes

Hope you enjoyed this recipe. 😀

xoxo,

    1. Hey thanks for reading! One tsp curry powder should not be too spicy, you can start with a 1/2 tsp curry powder and increase to taste to be safe! ABCD is a rude term Indian/Pakistani born people call American born Indian/Pakistani born people. American Born Confused Desi. Desi means fellow person from India/Pakistan/Bangladesh. It’s an annoying term but sometimes true!
