Potatoes and Carrots in Coconut Curry

“This is a typical southern Indian dish where coconut milk is a common ingredient. This dish can be made in about 5 hours in a slow cooker and served hot, warm or at room temperature, like a traditional potato salad. Cooking times may vary due to the type and size of potatoes you use. This recipe calls for coconut cream; however, you can substitute coconut milk if desired. Recipe is from The Gourmet Vegetarian Slow Cooker cookbook.”

Directions

  1. Wash the potatoes thoroughly, then place them in the slow cooker insert and add the water. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until the potatoes are fairly tender (cooking time will depend on the size and type of potato you use). Tiny red potatoes, for instance, will generally cook in less than 4 hours, so use a fork to determine doneness. If your potatoes are fairly large, you may wish to cut them carefully into quarters.
  2. In a saute pan, heat the oil and saute the onion over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin seeds, and fennel seeds and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes. Add the onion, carrots, and curry powder to the potatoes and carefully stir in the coconut cream. Re-cover and continue cooking for 1 hour.
  3. Add salt to taste, then spoon the curry into a bowl or onto plates and garnish with the chile slices and cilantro.
