This is an excellent way to cook new potatoes, as they cook slowly, almost in their own juices, in a curry-flavored sauce. This dish goes well with grilled meat, poultry or fish. If you're cooking for vegetarians, serve it as a main course along with a bowl of dal and green vegetable. It also makes a delicious summer meal, accompanied by a garden salad.

This was DELICIOUS. Only comment--it served two perfectly. I will double the recipe next time. I used an OSO sweet onion, and served it over half white/half brown rice. It was stupendous, healthy, and filling.
This was a nice recipe. I used some manner of healthy request chicken broth, added some stewing beef, and that was about all I changed. Even after stirring well, all the good stuff sunk to the bottom and I didn't realize it until we had already eaten. My husband was sure to get some with his seconds. :) Not sure what I did wrong.
