Essay About How to Make Curried Potatoes

About Curried Potatoes

I first used this recipe when I started university as it was cheap and quick to make, it very quickly became a go-to staple for any meal because of how easy it is to make. It’s one of those meals that help with food prep as you can make a large batch in advance, then just freeze it in portions and take it out to have in a burrito or with a curry.

Perfect for students, busy parents or anyone who likes to cook in advance. Scroll down for the ingredients and instructions. If you try this recipe please comment below to let me know how it went, enjoy!

Hints and Tips

If you would prefer something slightly less spicy, you can omit the chilli and the spices. Instead of serving it as a side dish you can make it a part of a curry and simply add chicken and a jar of ready made curry sauce! My favourite jarred sauce is Patak’s Chicken Korma, it is a very mild sauce so is suited to anyone who favours less spicy food, it is also good for cooking a meal quickly so is highly suited to students or busy parents.
