Quick and easy curried potatoes and peas.

Curries are often overlooked in home cooking. This recipe is a fast and easy way to add exotic and rich flavors to some common ingredients.

Take one large baking potato and chop it into 1/2 inch cubes, put them in a bowl and microwave on high for about 5 minutes.

Slice one large onion into thin rings

Mince 4 cloves of fresh garlic

In a sauce pan add 2 tbs olive oil and 1/2 stick of butter.

Sautee the onions and garlic on medium heat while the potato is cooking.

Add the cooked potatoes to the pan.

Add one table spoon of curry powder (personally I prefer garam masala)

Lower the heat slightly and add 1 cup of frozen sweet peas

Carefully stir in 1 cup of heavy whipping cream or half an half.

Blend all the ingredients over medium low heat for 2 more minutes

This dish is best served with roasted chicken or pork chops.

Curry is a staple for tuna or chicken salad.
I go a little nuts if I run out...

Curried tuna or chicken in half a cantaloupe is DIVINE!, you're right, TMW!

I don't use much cream or 1/2 and 1/2 (drat!), so I throw in some tomato sauce and a little lemon juice and that's really good with peas, potatoes, etc., too......I add more cumin to the curry, too..mmm
