- 2 small red or Yukon potatoes, diced
- ½ c water
- 1 c tomato sauce
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- 12 oz frozen mixed vegetables

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the leek and sauté for 5 minutes, then add the ginger, garlic, and potatoes and sauté for 2 minutes more. Add the water, tomato sauce and curry powder and bring to a simmer. Stir well, cover with a lid and cook 6-8 minutes. Add the frozen mixed vegetables and coconut milk and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
Serving suggestion: This Indian dish is delicious served hot over basmati rice with a side of naan; garnish with fresh cilantro or chopped peanuts for color and crunch. Add cubed tofu at the same time as the frozen vegetables for a heartier version.
