With hints of sweetness from the potatoes to the savory aromatic notes from the onion and garlic, this curry delivers the flavors of the Caribbean right into your kitchen. We’ve used traditional ingredients such as coconut milk, plantains, and green pigeon peas. Enjoy this hearty curry with warm fluffy jasmine rice as soon as it’s done cooking or freeze for an easy staycation meal later. Use plantains that are yellow mottled with brown spots, but are not completely brown yet.
Note: If you would like, add 1-2 tsps homemade Curry Powder to add even more flavor to this delicious meal.
