      This is one of our staple dishes in Trinidad where East Indian food is part of our local cuisine. I enjoy this served over steamed jasmine rice.

      1 /4 cup vegetable oil
      1 small onion, chopped
      2 cloves garlic, chopped
      2 tbsp curry powder
      4 potatoes, peeled & chopped
      2 tbsp mixed green seasoning
      1 can channa
      2 pimento peppers, finely chopped
      3-4 leaves chadon beni, chopped fine
      1/2 tsp salt or salt to taste
      1/2 tsp geera
      1/2 tsp masala
      Creole hot pepper, chopped if hot taste is desired

      Heat oil and add onion and garlic.
      Add curry powder and stir until mixture is almost dry.
      Add potato and green seasoning. Stir until coated with curry.
      Add channa and mix. Then add pimento and chadon beni.
      Add about 2 cups of water, just enough to cover the channa and potato.
      Cook until potatoes are tender and mixture is thick.
      Stir in salt, geera and masala. Add hot pepper, if desired to taste.
      Serve with paratha or roti skins or over rice.

        • This recipe sounds good.  Forgive my ignorance, but I’m not familiar with some of the ingredients such as channa, chadon beni, and geera.  Where do you purchase it?

          Thanks,
          Linda

        • Channa is also known as chick peas or garbanzo beans. Chadon beni (pronounced shadow benny) is a local green herb and the closest I can come to that is probably coriander for you all. Geera, masala and curry are also flavorful powdered herbs that can be bought at our supermarkets in Trinidad & Tobago but you may have to go to a specialty store for these. But when you do prepare this, you will just love it. If you can’t find the ingredients, then you’ll have to go an Indian restaurant and order some roti, this dish and a curried meat of your choice. Just divine. heart
