curried potatoes

This was in the june 2008 vegetarian times. I made it last week and we liked it. My son called it vegetarian slop ;) I used a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of fresh and I used plain ole baking potatoes - in otherwords what I had here on hand.   I also threw in a cup of rice to it too.  

1 1/2 tbs vegetable oil
2 medium onions, diced ( 3 cups )
3 gloves garlic, minced ( 1 tbs )
4 large yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2 inch pieces ( 1 cup )
3 tbs madras curry powder
1 15 oz can black beans
3 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped ( 1 1/2 cups )
1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
2 jalapenoa chiles, seeded and finely chopped ( 1/4 cup )
1 tsp balsamic vinegar

1.  heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. add onions and garlic, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until onions are soft and translucent.  Stir in potatoes, carrots and curry powder and cook 4 minutes.

2.  Add beans and their liquids, tomatoes, broth, jalapeno chiles, vinegar and 1 cup water; season with salt an dpepper. cover and simmer 45 minutes or until potates are flaky and carrots are cooked through, stirring occasionally.

Can you make this with regular curry powder?  I have no earthly idea what madras curry is.

Madras is generally what people consider generic curry powder.  It has a lot of tumeric in it.  You will be good with your regular.

I love curry, I love potatoes and black beans, I have been learning and enjoying Indian cooking, and I am a "recent" vegetarian.  (Gave up red meat in April, fish and chicken about 6 weeks ago).  I'll be sure to give this a try!  Thanks!

Wonko!  Glad to see you!  I was a vegetarian for a long time, relapsed and became a meat eater, and am recently vegetarian again, though I still eat fish.  

Trudie, thanks!  I love curry, and I'm glad to know mine will work ok.

I like curry, but have never had curried potatoes.

Has anyone ever had curried liver, or do I stand alone in liking it?

Made this tonight and quite enjoyed it!

Oh good!  I thought it really hit the spot when I made it.  I think it'll be good this winter when it's cold outside and I need comfort food :)

As promised, I DID make this, at last!  I don't buy potatoes that much, but got around to it this week.

Loved it!  Soooo very simple.  Now, I need to study the thread about creating my very own curry powder to personalize the flavor!
