This curry is amazing!!! Have you ever tried it with sweet potatoes instead? I want to try it but I’m afraid it’s not gonna be as good!
This is excellent! Soooo tasty. The coconut milk really elevates the flavour of the dish.
Perfect for cold winter days
This became a family favourite from the first time we cooked it. It's simple enough to make on those nights when we come home from work and aren't feeling inspired to cook at all, and the ingredients are staples we always have on hand. Non-vegans love it too.
Wow! So delicious and simple ! Taste like from restaurant 😁 it opened new world of flavours
This curry is a favorite in my household. Just so comforting and delicious! And you are so addicting to watch.
Making this for dinner tonight because I am hungry for something filling 😋 I have made this recipe several times and it always hits the spot 😋 delicious and wholesome! 👌🤗 🍲
This was so delicious!!
This curry has become a staple at home, we’ve made it at léase twice a month for the last year. Thank you so much! We send you a big smile from the Canary Islands
I'm a very reluctant cook who loves Indian food and curries especially. Even I can make this and look like a pro. It was a little lightly spiced with powdered spices, so I got some whole spices which made a lovely difference. We also find that the flavors meld and intensify the second and third days, if it lasts that long. Thank you for all your delightful recipes. Courtney
PS - I'm a giant fan of really simple (5-7 ingredient) dishes, so you might want to consider videos on that. Another idea would be to create some videos about making your own spice mixtures and how they can best be used. Thanks again!
I’ve made this curry a few times now, honestly one of my favourites!!
Loved it!!! Perfect blend of flavors and just spicy enough without being too spiced!
Hi Sadia! Can you freeze this curry? I'm currently stocking on post-partum meals and this looks delicious :)
Let me just say - no often do I find dishes that satisfy the ALL three of our kids and us parents. It's been a success and a much anticipated dish time and time again with plates and the pot literally licked clean. Thank you!
if you only have ground spices, do you use the same amount as the whole spices for this recipe?
This is soooo delicious and creamy <3 didn't have garam masala so used only simple curry powder instead, but it was so good, nevertheless! Thx, Sadia!
This curry is incredible! A quick and easy recipe packed full of veggies. It is perfect for the cold weather because it is so comforting and warm.
Hi Sadia.. I came across your videos on YouTube a few days ago and saw the video for this recipe. I made this today and it was so incredibly delicious. I have made a version of this dish for so many years but the spinach and coconut milk just made it heaven. I skipped the buillon cubes and garlic. We had it with brown rice and corn tortilla chips for a little crunch. :) So excited to try the blueberry oatmeal for breakfast tomorrow.
Oh my word! I should have quadrupled this recipe!!!! It is amazing! Just the right amounts of savory and a hint of sweetness from the coconut milk and onions. I skipped the bouillon because it contains msg, so I just added some salt until it was perfect.
Greetings from Zutphen! I am just loving your recipes! I have two questions. Could you please share where you buy your spices like turmeric, Garamond masala, etc. I notice that my spices (like turmeric) have a very different color to what you use in your video. And is the brown rice you serve ‘zilvervlies rijst’? Thank you so much. Lynn
So. Good! Really easy to make too and that squeeze of lemon at the end worked so well. Another fabulous recipe, thank you! 👌🏻
Love making this potato & pea curry as it calls for all basic ingredients that I always have on hand (frozen organic spinach & peas) & it tastes fantastic too! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipes.
the best comforting meal!
Was missing some ingredients... made it without the bulion cube, chickpeas, spinach and cayenne (thouh I added other spices), and it tasted great!
LOVE this recipe, so delicious! My 1.5 year old daughter (Robin!) is a massive fan too, I've never seen her eat so much food at once. Thanks for sharing!
This is one of those recipes thanks to which I eat less meat. So thank you :)
This has become a go to after work curry - it's delicious and quick to make, and we always have the ingredients.
I've made this curry a fair few times now and its delicious! A family favourite with both adults and kids. It's my first experience cooking with spice seeds instead of the ground version and wow! The depth of flavour it adds is amazing. Perfect comforting meal now the weather is getting colder. Thank you so much Sadia 💕
I don't even know what to say about this or any other curry found in this website. They are all just so spectacularly flavorsome! I could use all your curry recipes and make a different one every day and I think I would never get sick of them. Simply delicious! Thank you Sadia!
Comforting and delicious, especially on those colder autumn days 😍 we have cooked it so many times already and it never disappoints !
Sadia did it a again! Amazing flavourfull recipe! Love it!
I have made this recipe so many times and it never disappoints.
Potatoes and curry....two of my favorite things in the world! I've made this recipe multiple times because it is just that good.
This curry is packed with flavour. When I made this the first time I had not expected that a curry this quick and easy to make could be so flavourful. Both the spices and other ingredients are part of my kitchen stock - A great pantry staple that my kids can also more than appreciate. Even better when prepped the night before. Definitely one of my favourite curries to make and eat.
What I love about your recipes is that they are always rich with flavours, this one is not an exception! As always very delicious! I added lemon grass while sautéing the onions and kept it while boiling the potatoes then removed it (I learned it from your recipe Coconut Thai Green Curry noodles Soup)
I tried it once and it was sooo good, I've been hooked ever since!
My partner and I make this curry all the time, it's our all-time favorite and we usually have all the ingredients at home. Sometimes we use frozen spinach and it still turns out great. Love it with the homemade naan too!
I had it about 100 times because it's to rich and creamy yet so healthy.
today i made this for the first time and i absolutely loved it! i've been vegan for about one month now and your recipes have inspired me so much and make me look forward to going to the kitchen. I made this curry for dinner today and my family (not vegan) LOVED it :))) thank you so much for all your hard work and effort, i really appreciate it!
I am excited every time I make this. I wake up excited knowing I have leftovers, and that I'm going to have something so delicious and flavorful to so easily reheat. The base tastes similar to the curry my dad made when I was little, so I'm hit in the face with nostalgia every time I eat it. And when I make naan with it, ohhhh hoho it's just so good. My roommates always beg me to share it with them.
I had actually never had nor made a curry before this recipe and honestly, this is one of my favorite things to make. It is ABSOLUTELY delicious and warms the tummy! I love love love this recipe and I think it is just so inviting and easy to make, even if you've never made a curry.
This is my go-to easy comfort food now and it tastes great every time!
Very tasty, though next time I will lightly crush the cumin coriander and mustard seeds and toast them off first in a dry frypan then add them later with the other spices, I found that when fried off whole at the start per the recipe it leant an odd texture to the finished dish. Otherwise it was fabulous.
I have lost count at how many times I’ve made this recipe. It’s a staple in my kitchen. Thank you so much for showing me. It’s incredibly budget friendly and has filled my belly when my wallet was a little dry.
I haven’t found a recipe on your site that I haven’t enjoyed!
Thanks for all the hard work you’ve done with coming up with these recipes and revamping the website ! Looks really great!
Lots of love from Winnipeg, Manitoba
Have made this a couple times and its incredible <3 !
We have this all the time, it's the bomb! It has replaced our go-to veggie curry.
With food like this, Sadia and Pickup Limes team have reignited my love for a V based diet. I don't really look anywhere else anymore, this project is too perfect.
Thanks Sadia, Robin and the team. Much love from New Zealand.
Another delicious and nourishing recipe !!
We served it with brown rice and was the perfect match .
You're doing a great job , Sadia !! You 're bringing the plant-based recipes to another level !!
I appreciate so much everything you do !! Thank you !!
