potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
green chile peppers, chopped
fresh curry leaves
This is a really good recipe. I had to make a few changes because not all of the ingredients are available to me. I cannot find curry leaves any where around where I live and since I only found out last week that I was cooking Sri Lankan cuisine for my blog this week, there simply wasn't time to order any. I read that curry leaves are similar in appearance to bay leaves but they do, in fact, taste like curry. I subbed 1-1/2 teaspoons of curry powder instead. I used a few of my saffron threads, I didn't have powder, but I don't really think that changed the dish at all. I also had to cut back on the chile peppers because my neighbor simply can't eat spicy foods. I used one jalapeno, with the seeds and veins removed and minced it up very fine...he could eat this recipe. As this was cooking, I could totally imagine being in a Sri Lankan marketplace...the smell was amazing. The taste of dish is fantastic! Thanks for a superb recipe!
beign a wimp when it comes to spice I ended up using only one small chili instead of 3. I also ended up using the whole 14oz can of coconut cream. The flavors were great, but it took me twice as long to cook, which caused me to add alot more liquid to prevent the sauce from burning. Since I did not have a scale this may have been an issue more on my part of having too much potato.
Excellent flavors and it does go really well with plain rice. I would change up the method of preparation next time by sauteing the garlic and potatoes in some vegetable oil before adding the other ingredients. For those who aren't used to spicy food I would recommend trying it with just the green chile peppers first and then, if you can handle it, add the cayenne. Overall a very good dish, thanks for sharing!
