''Curried'' Berbere Potatoes

Cari De Pomme De Terre Berbere

We changed one ingredient in one of our favorite Spice Coast recipes - the spices. We simply replaced South Indian masala with another all-purpose blend. The real enjoyment is the contrast between the ''melt in your mouth'' potatoes in their coconut sauce and the crunchy cashews.


  • 1 ½ lbs (700 gr) new potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp coconut or vegetable oil
  • 2 large oignons, coarsley diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp ginger, chopped

  • 2 Tbsp Ethiopian Berbere, ground
  • 1 ¾ cup coconut milk
