Curried Potatoes

Budget meals were a regular part of my upbringing. My parents both grew up in families where money was tight. They knew what it was to pinch a penny.

Curried Potatoes were a staple in our diet. When we had fried pork chops, curried potatoes were always the featured side dish. Always. Always.

I had no clue that other people had applesauce with their pork chops. Curried Potatoes are what you’re supposed to have.¬†And they are quiet easy to make.

Do YOU have a family favorite potato recipe?

  1. applesauce and fried potatoes were our side dishes with fried pork chops. i’m going to try your curry version of fried potatoes. i think they’ll be liked by all at our house.

  2. My favorite way to eat potato is pan-fried potatoes with onions. When I was in school, my grandmother kept my brother and I. Money was tight so she would fry a pan of taters n onions. We would always eat until we were stuffed, and then wouldn’t eat dinner. My mom said that she was going to quit cooking meals and just cook taters n onions. :-)

  3. Nom nom nom …. curried potatoes are a favorite at our house. Yum.

  4. We never had applesauce with pork chops either! We always had potato pancakes (from a box)–and probably a can of corn. I served pork chops to hubby when we were newlyweds and was horrified when he asked for applesauce. :-O

  5. Oh, I remember those! I loved them as a kid. I tried making them as a newlywed with slightly different instructions…but they didn’t turn out as good as Mom’s so I gave up. Maybe I’ll give your recipe a try.

  6. We eat so many potatoes here! For one thing, my husband is Russian, so potatoes are a mainstay of their diet. Some of our favorite ways to make them are:
    Roasted potatoes- We peel and cube the potatoes, then add chunked carrots. Toss with some olive oil, sea salt and 3 cloves of finely minced garlic. Place in a baking pan and bake at 400 degrees, until browned and tender.

    We also like homemade Pierogies or what my husband calls Variniky.
    Mashed potatoes with gravy is another thing we have quite often.

  7. I’m unfamiliar with this recipe but it sounds really good! 10 lb. bags of potatoes are on sale at my grocery store this week so I’m going to give them a try!

  8. I made that last week, and DH and I really, REALLY liked it! I’ll have to make it again … soon!

    Most of us like simple roasted wedges/potato bits. Cut ‘em up, toss them in oil, put them in the 450* F oven for 45 minutes or so, depending on how you cut them up. Sprinkle with salt after. Of the five of us, only my girl doesn’t like them. But she doesn’t like french fries either … or pizza. Which is weird for a six year old!

  9. I’m going to try these this week. Mashed potatoes are our favorite potatoes.

  10. Oh I think I’m going to love this potato recipe! I am struggling to find ways to cut back on the food budget more than we already do, so anything like this will help! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!!

  11. I never had curried potatoes before but I have been trying new things and since I was making a quick stir fry with an Indian butter sauce I wanted a side to go with the theme. These were soooo good even my 6 year old ate them up! The only thing different I did was I bought a bag of simply potatoes. They are already diced and have onions mixed in. I don’t have a lot of time so this was an awesome shortcut. Love the recipe and will be using it from now on. I am also going to be checking out the rest of your recipes if they are anything like this then I will be one happy lady!
    Thanks.

  12. I make a big batch of curried potatoes once a month and freeze in sandwich baggies to add to a variety of dishes, including curried chicken. Yum!

  13. A favorite potato of ours is to cut potatoes (usually Klondike gold) either in wedges or cubes; toss with olive oil, sea salt, fresh snipped rosemary and parmesan cheese. You can cook these either on a baking sheet or on the grill. Either way, they are delish! Serve ‘em with grilled steaks seasoned with cracked black pepper & sea salt; or if cut in wedges, with burgers. (Black & Blue burgers are a fave of ours.)
