This Vegan Potato Curry just hits the spot 🎯 when you are craving 😋 good authentic homemade 🏡 South Indian flavors from Andhra Pradesh! It holds some very special memories for me of my very first exposure to the western world.Scroll all the way down to see a video of how to make this yummy curry.
The first time I realized how special this dish was when I was just 4 or 5 years old in India. My father was the Principal of a Christian boarding school in Uttar Pradesh. As I recall, my dad was out of town, probably on a work related trip. My mom decided that we would just eat leftovers for dinner. We had a young 21 year old student missionary from the U.S. - Mickey, staying with us. I think he was the first blond haired, blue eyed person I had seen, not to mention his height of 6 feet. In a family where the “tall” adults topped of at 5’2”, it was quite interesting. He talked about his beautiful girlfriend back in the U..S.. I think her name was Deanne. This concept of having a boyfriend or girlfriend being together without being married was also something I couldn’t wrap my head around at that time in India. It was just inconceivable. I remember staring at him with wide teacup eyes as I found all this SO very fascinating.
This potato curry that my mom made was Mickey’s favorite dish. He absolutely loved it. That evening, Mickey asked my mom if we were having potato curry and chapatis for dinner. She said something about leftovers . Apparently he wasn’t crazy about what we had for leftovers so he asked my mom if he could help her cook it . I remember thinking, “It’s just potato curry, we have it all the time. What’s the big deal ??” I think my poor tired mom obliged and cooked the dish for Mickey. 😃 She thought it was quite funny to crave such simple food 😂. Well, NOW I DO know what the BIG DEAL about this dish is !
On those days you want something warm, comforting and vegan/ vegetarian. Nothing beats the flavors of this simple South Indian homemade potato curry made with my Grandma’s “secret” homemade Andhra curry powder and other spices ! Adding egg to it is optional. However, I just love how well it melds all the flavors together and takes the edge off of spicy 🌶 heat.
Pair it with Naan, chapatis or rice . Enjoy eating this very special homemade dish ! 😋.

This chicken marinade is amazing! Marinate overnight is best and the chicken is crispy, moist, and so flavorful with just the right amount of heat! My whole family loves it - have only used chicken thighs, need to try with bone in, skin on chicken breast too!
Thank you Kim for this thoughtful and AWESOME review along with your gorgeous mouthwatering photos! I am SO delighted that you and your family love my chicken marinade seasoning kit. Good to know that the seasoning kit can used with both boneless vs. bone-in chicken thighs. Great tip! Thanks again for taking the time to write such a wonderful review ! I appreciate you !
I don’t like playing by the rules hence I decided to make a classic from the Hyderabadi cuisine - Bagara Baingan ( tempered eggplants) and my world did that taste yumm .. I used this spice and it blew life into the eggplant . Love these blends from Anar ..!!!
