Spicy Potato & Cabbage Coconut Curry with Lemongrass

With so much nonsense going on in the world, I am so grateful to have things in my life to take me away from it all…even if just for a moment.  Cooking has always been meditative for me.  It relaxes my mind so that all I have to focus on is making a delicious meal.  When I am cooking I don’t think about the atrocities plaguing our world.  Washing and chopping potatoes, simmering coconut milk, allowing the smell of curry leaves to fill my kitchen; these things take me to a peaceful place, and I am so grateful for it.  Creating this Spicy Potato & Cabbage Curry was a beautiful and much needed meditation session for me.

What is your form of meditation?

 

Curry Leaves vs. Curry Powder

I use curry leaves in this recipe instead of curry powder.  Curry leaves are hands-down one of my favorite ingredients to cook with.  The leaves are extremely aromatic and they add an amazing flavor to any savory recipe.  You use curry leaves similar to the way you use bay leaves.  Add them to soups, stews, curries (of course!) stir fries, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

Curry leaves taste nothing like curry powder to me, but if you cannot find them don’t stress out.  Just use your favorite curry powder in this recipe.

 

Where To Find Curry Leaves & Lemongrass

I have purchased both of these ingredients at Asian grocery stores and Indian Grocery Stores.  You can find the curry leaves fresh, dried, and sometimes frozen.  They are usually still on the stem when you find them fresh.  Dried and frozen curry leaves typically come in some sort of packaging.  I recommend purchasing whole curry leaves over crushed or powdered.  Their flavor and aroma diminish rapidly once crushed.

Lemongrass will typically be found fresh, in the produce section.  I’ve seen frozen, chopped, lemongrass a couple of times, but I would use that as a last resort.  From my experience, lemongrass loses its fragrance and flavor quickly once it has been cut.

 

Health Benefits of This Meal

Lemongrass oil has “analgesic, antimicrobial, antiseptic, carminative, astringent, antipyretic, fungicidal, bactericidal, and antidepressant properties, making it one of the most versatile and health-promoting essential oils”.

Ginger can help with digestion, nausea, inflammation, and researchers are currently studying its anti-cancer properties.  Scientists are studying its affects on ovarian and prostate cancer.

I hope you try this tasty coconut curry.  You can watch my Spicy Potato & Cabbage Coconut Curry cooking video below.

Enjoy!

    Yum yum! We eat only meat once a week but sometimes it is hard becauce I am from Thailand and we love our spicy food but most of the dishes are with meat. So this recipe seem like my cup of tea! Spicy and bold in flavors! And without meat!
    I might skip the potatoes and add noodles! (Remember I am asian, we love our noodles to!????)

    This looks really delicious! I also enjoy cooking when I have the time. I like to plug in a podcast or music to my speaker in the kitchen and chop away at my vegetables and organize my foods for the week. I haven’t done that in a long time and that’s probably one of the reasons why I feel so off balance lately!

      Yes, it’s so relaxing to me! That definitely could be why you feel off balance!

    This recipe makes me curious making me save this for some time. I want to try it on my own. To see and taste the outcome. Looks very spicy in the picture so I guess I will make it a little moderately spicy.

    First, let me tell you how much I want to copy your spicy potato and cabbage recipe. This is perfect during rainy season.
    It is sad to what is hapoening around the world. But I believe we can do something about it. We just have to set aside the differences and act together for peace.
