Yield: 4-6 servings
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. curry powder
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • pinch cumin
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 medium red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. fresh minced ginger
  • ½ serrano chile pepper, minced
  • 1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk (light or full-fat)
  • 1 (14 oz.) can low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. white or black pepper
  • Garnishes:
  • Cooked rice (white or brown)
  • Chopped peanuts
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Sliced pepper
  • Coconut milk
  1. In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the curry powder, paprika and cumin, toast until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the potatoes, carrot and onion, stir to coat with the spiced oil. Cover and allow the vegetables to cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and chile, cook for 2 additional minutes.
  2. Pour in the coconut milk, chicken broth, tomatoes, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Scrape the bottom to remove any browned bits, then bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the curry thickens a bit. When the potatoes are fork-tender, remove 2 cups of the mixture and pour into a blender. Blend until smooth, then return to the pot. Stir, then serve immediately with rice. Garnish with chopped peanuts, cilantro, slices of pepper and coconut milk.
-Chicken would be a great addition to this curry! Just add in some thinly sliced cooked chicken at the very end.
