  • Summary

    A Caribbean curry from Trinidad that tastes very similar to tomato based Indian vegetable curries. This curry has incredible flavour, and is one of the easiest real curries because you won't need to trek to the speciality store for the spices, you can get everything from the supermarket. This recipe is slightly modified from the Curry Channa and Aloo recipe from Immaculate Bites, a fantastic African/Caribbean food site.

    Ingredients

    • 3 tbsp cooking oil (I used vegetable)
    • 1 large onion , diced (brown, white, yellow)
    • 2 large garlic cloves , minced

    • 1 tsp All Spice powder

    • 1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika (can substitute with sweet or ordinary paprika)
    • 2 tsp dried thyme leaves (or 3 tsp fresh thyme leaves)
    • 1 tsp cumin powder
    • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper (Note 2)
    • 1 tsp white pepper (or 1/2 tsp black pepper)
    • 1 1/2 cups potatoes , cut into 1.2cm / 1/2" cubes
    • 28 oz / 800g canned chickpeas (2 x 14oz/400g) , drained
