To make the raita, mix all the ingredients together with some seasoning.

  • STEP 3

If the curry looks a little too saucy, scoop out the potatoes with a slotted spoon into another dish, then boil the sauce until reduced a little. stir the potatoes back in to heat through, and season well (this curry needs a good sprinkling of salt). serve with warmed Indian bread and a dollop of raita.
