  1. Combine the potatoes, salt, coconut cream, green chiles, curry leaves, cayenne pepper, saffron powder, garlic, and water in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the coconut cream thickens, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Test the potatoes for doneness by piercing them with the tip of a paring knife. When the potatoes are tender, remove the pan from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with plain rice.


  • Editor's Notes
  • Use 3 small green chile peppers, such as Thai chiles; if they're unavailable, substitute 1/2 serrano chile or to taste. Use rubber gloves when chopping chile peppers.
  • Canned coconut cream is available in specialty grocers and in the Asian foods section of some supermarkets. It is thicker than coconut milk, with a mild flavor. Do not substitute sweetened Cream of Coconut in this recipe.
