I made a half recipe of this but we two piggies ate it all. It was easy to put together and apart from about a half a teaspoon of salt and some chopped fresh coriander and a squeeze of lemon to finish it, I made it as directed. Russ loved it and wants it again really soon. I have to admit I didn't know how to treat the potatoes-did you want them cooked as whole potatoes or cut up like potatoe salad? I guessed this because it would be hard to measure 6 cups, but did wonder when you suggested in step 4 to just crush a potato to thicken the dish.

This is a great quick recipe, especially if you microwave the potatoes. The only things I did differently were to use less than half the oil and to add peas, DH's favorite for Indian food. Served 3-4 people as a very yummy main course.

This was easy to make and very filling. However, maybe I need something wrong but we ended up thinking that the sauce had a bitter taste. I served it with some mango chutney and when we mixed a bit of that with the curry on our plate it 'fixed' the problem. Perhaps it was the curry powder I used or something like that but in the future I would add just a tiny bit of something to sweeten things up. Made for the vegetarian and vegan swap.

ABSOLUTEY LOVED this, true! Tasty, delish too! Used hot chilli squeezable tube and did have to add water to paste, yes, How much? Is anyone's guess! You get a feel of when paste starts to dry, I HOPE people who wouldn't normally eat this will have a go and TRY! THANKS!

Did a bit of tweaking for our tastes. I added peas and tofu to make a main dish for us. Tossed in a bit of chili ginger sauce, powdered red pepper, sweet paprika, a slight hit of Garam Masala and plain fat free yogurt instead of water. The dish would have been a five star without the changes. I just kicked it up some notches for our taste this time.

Yum, yum, yum. I added about 1/2 cup of frozen peas towards the end of the cooking time just to bulk it out a bit more and add some colour. I also added 1 tsp of Himalayan Chrystal Rock Salt. Served with cottage cheese, poppadum's and relish it made for a wonderful vegetarian meal on a cold evening. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap May 2013.

This was really tasty. Definitely not boring old potatoes. I used extra garlic and a little salt, but otherwise stuck to the recipe as written. My dried hot peppers were flakes, so I used them. I used Dutch baby yellow potatoes. I agree that you do not want to use russets for this. The leftovers are just as good; maybe even better. Thanx for sharing!

I adopted this chef for PAC Fall 2007 and I am so glad I did!!! I loved this recipe! Very easy to make and a nice mild curry flavor. I could not find fenugreek seeds in my area, so I used 1/4 tsp. ground fenugreek instead. I made no other changes. My family enjoyed this and it was a refreshing change for us on a weeknight. I was not sure how much water to add. Next time I will add just a bit more water to make more sauce, and will add 2 dried peppers (I chose to add just one for my first attempt). This one is going in the book. Thanks, Elmotoo!
