Vegan Indian Potato Curry + Grilled Pineapple

Vegan Indian Potato Curry + Grilled Pineapple - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

Once again grilled cauliflower and potatoes makes their grand entrance. The curry sauce made here is Mark’s way which is much different from my curry sauce. His is more of a paste with strong spices where mine is more of a cream sauce using similar flavors. I love this dish. Potatoes and cauliflower grilled together are the perfect veggie combo. The sauce is legit and grilled pineapple is a gift from the gods. We did use hatched chilies which may be spicy for some people so change that to a heatless pepper if needed. We grilled the pineapple with my beloved thrift store George Foreman Grill but you could probably just oil a pan or use a waffle maker for the grill. This recipe serves 2.

2 servings of cooked rice (cooked with 1 anise star), 3 medium potatoes, head of cauliflower, 3 hatched green chile peppers, 2.5 TB oil, 2 tomatoes, 4 TB coconut milk, cilantro, spices (1 TB coriander, 1 TB turmeric, 1 TB cumin, 1 ts chili powder, 1 ts fenugreek, pinch of garlic & onion powder)

  1. Cut potatoes into small cubes and mix with .5 TB oil. Put on a baking tray and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Chop cauliflower into small pieces and mix with 2 TB oil. Put on a baking tray and sprinkle with salt. Bake both trays of veggies at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. The more golden and burnt the edges of the cauliflower the better.
  3. Put 4 TB of coconut milk from a can into a blended. Add 2 chopped tomatoes and 3 chilies with their seeds removed. Discard the bottom inch of cilantro stems. Cut a middle inch of the cilantro stems for the blender. BLEND!
  4. Pour your sauce from the blender into a pan and set to simmer.
  5. In a small bowl mix 1 TB coriander, 1 TB turmeric, 1 TB cumin, 1 ts chili powder, 1 ts fenugreek, pinch of garlic & onion powder and 1 ts salt. Mix spiced together then add to the sauce to simmer.
  6. Slice 4 rounds of pineapple and place on the grill til golden.
  7. Once pineapple is grilled set aside.
  8. Plate rice in 2 bowls. Mix veggies with sauce and place on top of rice. Top with pineapple and cilantro. ENJOY

  1. The grilled pineapple reminds me of a recipe from Mommy Tang!

    Grill pineapple.

    Toss pineapple in sweet chilI sauce.

    Mix in some scallions and sesame seeds.

    Serve besides rice.

    That’s it! I’ve tried this and love it! I make this with Thai garlic chili paste, instead of the sweet chili sauce, and black sesame seeds. Mmm you get sweet and spicy!

    Please don’t forget to try this!

    It is too easy and delicious to miss out on this!!

    I haven’t tried star anise rice. I actually haven’t tried star anise period. I saw a recipe where someone made arroz con leche (rice puddingish) and used it. I bought some and still haven’t even opened the package to smell it. Cant wait to try this rice!

    Please have Mark make more curry!! Or is this the main one he makes?

    Hey Mark I’m gonna make both of yalls curry and I’ll let y’all know who’s is best ๐Ÿ˜‚ Probably yours because veggie sauce sounds like the best already!!

    • dude you’re funny. You’re really selling me on watching mommy tang. I’m just really obsessed with Maangchi. I think you’ve mentioned watching her too.

      Mark makes different curries but they all taste so different than mine. I’m not sure if we usually follow recipes any more now that we have the general idea of indian spices/sauces. I think they all come out different but they all have the same spices.

      Whole foods sells this sweet chili sauce by the ginger people. I looks like chili sauce thats usually is garlic but it’s not. It’s chili sauce but with ginger. It’s the best! I haven’t used it in a while. I bought some, it ran out. A million years later I bought some more (last week) and still haven’t gotten around to using it. I’m too hook to the korean pepper paste. That stuff is amazing .
