Firstly the vegetables need to be prepared. For this, the onions and garlic are peeled and cut into slices.
In addition, the potatoes and carrots are peeled and cut into bite-sized cubes.
The important thing to tease out the aromas is to first roast the spices in the rapeseed oil. You can clearly smell how the aromas unfold during roasting. Only then should you add the onions and garlic.

When everything is fried a little, add the potatoes and carrots. In addition, the whole thing is deglazed with canned tomatoes and some water.
Let everything simmer until everything has the desired cooking point.
Finally, taste and season with salt and lemon juice.
We like to serve the curry with some basmati rice.

Upgrade the vegan potato curry:

If you miss proteins in the recipe, you can easily add them by adding chickpeas from the jar or cooked lentils from the can or from the day before. If you can spare a few minutes, marinated tofu or tempeh is always a good source of plant-based protein.
