Potato and mushroom curry in coconut milk

Potatoes are one the best vegetables to use as the base for a vegetable curry because they take on the flavors in Indian dishes so well. I prefer doing this recipe with red potatoes, but russet or golden potatoes will work also. I was first introduced to potato curry fifteen years ago at a hole-in-the-wall Indian restaurant in the middle of Honolulu. I had to have a generous helping of the potato curry at least once a week to get my fix. Honolulu is a true culinary gem with its multitude of Japanese, Thai, Hawaiian, Indian and other restaurants. It takes the term “melting pot” to another level. It was such a delight to have a diverse mix of people and food surrounding me.

This dish incorporates some of my favorite Indian spice mixes: curry powder and garam masala. Make sure you buy a quality coconut milk brand to use for this curry because the consistency and flavor of the milk is crucial to a good curry. Also, be sure not to boil the dish on too much heat when you add the coconut milk. It will separate and disturb the uniformity of texture.

You can add different vegetables to the potatoes. I really like green peas and shiitakes, but snow peas, carrots and other her types of mushrooms would be great. Make sure to really cook down the onions. This is the most important rule of Indian cooking for me. It adds so much to the flavor when the sugars come out in them!
