This is by far the easiest and most delicious curry I have ever made. It's my own personal twist on Aloo Gobi, a traditionally dry Indian dish consisting of potatoes and cauliflower. The coconut milk adds the extra sauciness, my favourite part of curry. Serve with basmati rice or, even better, with breads such as roti, naan or pita.
Garam masala is a blend of ground spices. Find it in the herbs and spices section at the supermarket.
Used different ingredients. Cut or reduce Cayenne pepper. - 17 Jun 2010
I thought this was fan-tastic. I actually made this twice -- the first time the cayenne pepper was so overwhelming I had to dilute it with heaps of coconut milk. But, I made it a second time w/o the pepper and it was a lot easier to eat. The coconut milk + diced tomatoes idea is a great one. The flavour is very creamy with a hint of sweetness.

Yummy! It does have a bit of a kick (equivilant of say, a 3 star), so I'd suggest backing down on the cayenne a tad if you can't tolerate the heat. This is the first indian dish I haven't bombed thus far.... so I definately count this as an easy meal! Relatively cheap, too. If you already have all of the spices on hand, the rest of the ingredients add up to about $10. ***updated*** I previously forgot to mention that I omit the garam masala (it changes the flavor and I like it better without). Additionally, cutting the cayenne pepper by about half allows one to be able to taste the wonderful flavors instead of mostly just feeling the heat.
