Potatoes in Creamed Coconut

I found this recipe in my cookbook called, "Potatoes", however, I changed the recipe from its original version. The recipe called for a ratio of (1 onion and red chili pepper) per (1 pound of potatoes) which I altered by reducing, and I also added all the extra spices that were not in the original recipe. Last, I accidentally used cream of coconut versus the creamed coconut which made it sweeter in flavor, but it was a lovely combination. You could still use the creamed coconut as an alternative if you prefer a milder flavor since it was a little too sweet for my taste.

How to Make Potatoes in Creamed Coconut

Step-by-Step

  • 1I did not peel the potatoes since I used waxy variety of potatoes, however, you could still use another type and peel them. Cut potatoes into approximately 1/2 - 3/4 inch chunks.
  • 2Place the potatoes into the pan with the diced onions, chili peppers, salt, pepper, curry powder, ground ginger, paprika, and cumin along with the creamed coconut. Stir in the bouillon.
  • 3Bring to a boil, stirring, then lower the heat and cover. Simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender.
  • 4Adjust the seasoning to taste, then sprinkle with the chopped cilantro or basil. Serve immediately while hot.
