Instructions potato curry
Wash and peel the potatoes, then cut them into regular cubes. Place them in a bowl and season with some extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to cover them well then place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake in a preheated 220 °C static oven for about 30 minutes. Turn them over from time to time, so that they brown on all sides.
Meanwhile, prepare the spices by emptying the cardamom pods and collecting the seeds in a pan together with coriander, cumin and chilli flakes. Toast for a few minutes, then put the spice mix into a mortar and grind them into fine powder.
Peel onion and garlic cloves and chop them. Cook over medium / low heat in a pan with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil or, if you prefer, with coconut oil, until they become soft and slightly translucent. Add the mix of spices and turmeric and mix.
Add a cup of vegetable stock and continue to cook for about 5 minutes. Taste and adjust with salt if necessary.
At this point add the coconut milk, bring to a boil, then remove from the heat. Now add potatoes into the sauce, which should be quite liquid, stir well and serve.
