Hashbrowns With Curry Powder

 There has to be a million breakfast recipes out there. 

With all of those possibilities sometimes the only thing I'm certain of on the weekends is I'm going to have coffee. Most of the time I feel I have to make a whole new recipe. Other times you add a single spice and make something entirely new. 

I've said in earlier posts that I'm a little obsessed with curry spice lately. I used it in a wonderful Eric Ripert recipe and I added it to scrambled eggs and chickpeas recently. I didn't think to add it to my potatoes. Thank goodness it came to me as I was scouring my spice cabinet this morning. I added 1/2 tsp to my chopped fingerling potatoes as they were in the frying pan. It was an easy way to have a new breakfast.

I'm thankful for my for spice cabinet.

Curried Hashbrowns

10 fingerling potatoes sliced
Olive oil (for frying pan)
1/2 tsp curry powder

Heat your frying pan to medium high with olive oil (around 2 tbsp). Add the fingerling potatoes. Season with salt and add the curry powder. Fry until the potatoes are crisp on the outside and cooked through.  Garnish with chopped cilantro.


  1. Fingerling potatoes are by far my favourite potatoes. Their richness is perfect for frying, I'm going to try curry in mine next time! My guilty pleasure is fried fingerling wedges dipped in mayo.

  2. Simple and delightful...and who doesn't like curry!

  3. I love curry! But where do you find fingerlings at this time of the year? I will have to hunt!

  4. I love curry flavours - this is a great watch to change up hashed potatoes - yum!

  5. Simple but Im sure delicious dish :)

  6. Yum! I bet this would be great with Yukon gold potatoes as well!

  7. Nathan would love these. I don't eat curry {no spicy foods for me}, but he is a huge, huge fan. I wonder if I could pull this off with sweet potatoes. I have one that isn't going to last much longer...

  8. Your recipe reminded me of the perfect curry wursts (sausages) that I had in Berlin few months ago. It's so cool to sprinkle curry powder on stuff :)

  9. A great simple recipe. It's what breakfast is all about.

    This is fantastic, too! My husband will love it!

  11. Curry is a great touch! We're featuring side dishes this week over at the M&T Spotlight and I'd love for you to submit this.
