This recipe is good for those days when you have dinner that might be postponed for a long time. The curry can be served quickly, but if you leave it on the stove longer the potatoes turn into a kind of delicious curry gravy for the garbanzos. We served it with greens, and it would have been good with a side of cauliflower as well.
- 2-3 lbs potatoes, boiled, with 1 cup cooking water reserved
- 1 onion, chopped
- Oil for frying
- curry powder, to taste
- 1 can coconut milk
- 2 cans garbanzo beans, cooked and drained and rinsed
Prepare potatoes by boiling them until done. Reserve some cooking water.
While the potatoes are boiling, fry a chopped onion in some oil on low heat. When the onion smells nice but is not brown, add the curry powder and cook, stirring, until fragrant.
Add the coconut milk to the curry mixture and stir until well mixed. Then add the garbanzoes, and cook covered on low heat.
When the potatoes are ready, add them to the garbanzo curry. Cut the potatoes into smaller pieces if they are too large. Keep covered, and add up to 1 cup potato water if the mixture gets too dry.
