This potatoes and green beans recipe will give you a healthy and hearty curry ready in under an hour. A delicious vegetarian curry recipe made with softened potatoes and crispy green beans slathered in a spicy onion and tomato masala.

A spicy and aromatic vegetable curry recipe packed with an earthy flavour and just the right amount of spice. Serve with a side of homemade chapatti or a side of boiled basmati rice for a delicious dinner or lazy lunch.

Anyone with kids knows how difficult it is to get them to eat vegetables. So, I always like to develop recipes that incorporate vegetables into the main meal.

I know my kids will never eat vegetables alone, so by doing this then I can ensure that they still get their daily intake of fruit and veg! Examples of these recipes include my chicken pasta or my chicken quesadillas.

I have another mixed vegetable curry that incorporates multiple vegetables, cauliflowers, potatoes, bell peppers, carrots, and green beans. This green beans and potato curry only has green beans and potatoes in it because I absolutely love the combination.

My husband wouldn’t agree with me, but in the end, I was right. When it comes to cooking, it usually always works out that way, if I’m honest!

Green beans are extremely low in calories, so this curry is a perfect recipe for those who are looking to find something a bit healthier. Not only this but there are so many health benefits associated with green beans. They have high amounts of vitamins and minerals that contribute to healthy skin and bones.

Very tasty! I wanted something other than my typical coconut milk-based curry and this was very good. I used fresh green beans, Yukon Gold potatoes and all I had were cherry tomatoes (the ones that come in the little plastic dome) and it worked great. I could see using cauliflower and garbanzo beans in this same sauce. Bookmarking this one!
