Nepalese Potato, Tomato and Pea Curry
from Joy

A rich flavored curry-easy to make and not expensive. Can be thrown together at the last minute, a favorite also with vegetarians.


  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 large onion, finely sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1-2 mild green chilies
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon gingerroot, fresh grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup hot water

Heat oil in a saucepan and fry onion until soft and golden. Stir in pepper, chili, garlic, ginger, turmeric and salt. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes then add the potatoes; stir.

Add the remaining ingredients and hot water. Simmer until vegetables are cooked, thicken if necessary.

Serve with rice and accompaniments.
