Expert Tips

Curry powder, a blend of more than 20 herbs, seeds and spices, is integral to Indian cuisine. In India, curry powder as we know it doesn't exist; cooks blend their own personal mixture each day. Cardamom, chiles, cinnamon, coriander, cumin and turmeric are a few of the seasonings used to make curry powder.

Larger potatoes can be substituted for the small new potatoes. Cut them into 1-inch pieces (use about 4 cups).

To make a hearty meal of this thick stew, serve it with warmed pita bread and hot tea.
