Pea and Potato Curry

April 01 , 2015 by: Drishty 300-400 Calorie Meals, Mains



There are times when you just crave something from your childhood and get this urge to have it as soon as possible. Unfortunately my potato and pea curry isn’t as good as my mom’s but the good news is, it’s pretty damn close! 🙂

Potato and Pea curry is very simple, and such a super quick curry to make. You can serve it with roti, paratha or rice. I love my daal from time to time, so I usually make a full Gujarati Indian meal with daal, roti, rice and chutney.

Bonjour, my name is Drishty Ghadia. I was born and raised in India, where in a Vegetarian household I developed my love for cooking spicy food. Then later on moving to and spending 10+ years in the US, I found myself dumbstruck and in love with the high sugar, high fructose corn syrup, high cholesterol - yet oh so addictive food. I mean have you ever gone through an entire menu of The Cheese Cake Factory?

In the past few years I have jumped countries yet again and now I live in the land of Fish and Chips and Yorkshire Pudding - the lovely UK. I love to travel and I believe that you have to taste a culture to understand it. Italian, Spanish, Chinese, French, Swiss, German, Moroccan, Japanese, Malaysian, Sri Lankan, Indian, Peruvian, South African, Kenyan, Middle Eastern - you name it, I've eaten it and tried to make some vegetarian fusion version of it in my kitchen.

Food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. I will be recreating some original and some fusion recipes from my travels in my kitchen and will share them with you here. Hope you enjoy them!
