Mom's Potatoes and Peas

My Mom came by last night and dropped of some of her scrumptious Fish Pie and some Shepard's Pie too.   I'm having her Fish Pie for lunch right now and it feels like I am getting a big and loving hug from her too.  My Mom got rear ended on the way home from dropping her treats off to me.  Please send her a big hug along with me.

My Mom is an amazing cook.  Here is a recipe her Potatoes and Peas.  I love to eat them on their own, with some naan or rotli or even some rice and yogurt. YUM!

This what your dish will look like if you add coriander as a garnish.

Mom's Potatoes and Peas
In a saucepan add:

Curry leaves (Just a couple.)

Heat the above for one minute until you hear popping.

Next add:
2 tbsp of tomato paste
3 potatos diced
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp tumeric powder

It's as simple as that!  Potatoes and peas....yes please!

I'm coming back for this recipe ASAP. It's one of my favorite Indian dishes & sounds so easy. I tried to wing it last time I made Indian food and added way too much . . . turmeric? Which resulted in a giant mess. Can't wait to try your mama's recipe!! xoxoxo
