Potato Pea Curry

This easy, one-pot potato pea curry makes a great weeknight dinner. It’s pantry-friendly and goes from stove to table in less than 30 minutes.

Begin by frying onions, garlic, and ginger in hot oil, then stir in curry powder, turmeric, salt, and cayenne. Add potatoes, tomato paste, and broth; cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in coconut milk and peas, cook until warmed through, and mix in chopped cilantro. That’s it!

I highly recommend enjoying this curry over warm basmati rice to soak up the yummy coconut curry sauce.
