Spanish Chorizo and Potato Curry

I find this chorizo and potato curry very relaxing and different. Mainly because chorizo is very different in taste. With potatoes and tomatoes they create a beautiful dish which requires so little of time. If you are looking for an easy going food, then this chorizo and potato curry should be the one for you.

Ingredients:
300gm Spanish chorizo sausage – sliced in ½ inch thick pieces (I fry them a little before cutting because that gives me firm pieces.)(Pick the raw version of chorizo which needs to be cooked)
2 or 3 medium potatoes – peeled and washed
2 tomatoes – chopped / 4 tbsp of tomato paste
2 onions – finely chopped
2 tsp paprika / chilli powder
2 dry red chillies
1 whole green chilli
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
½ tsp thyme
2 medium bay leaves
4-6 fat garlic cloves – minced / paste
Salt
2-3 tbsp of white oil

Method:
Heat the oil and sauté the minced garlic in it for half a minute or until they start to become brown.
Now add the chopped onions to them and cook them until they become translucent.
Add the tomatoes, bay leaves, dry red chillies, whole green chilli, thyme, salt and pepper and cook until the tomatoes become pulpy and curry like.
Add the paprika / chilli powder and cook for 2-3 minutes more.
Now throw in the sliced sausages and fry them well.
Cook them for 2-3 minutes.
Now take a potato and make a small cut using a knife and slightly give upward pressure on it to break that piece of potato from its body. Follow this process until you finish all of them.
Add 1 and ½ cup of water and put cover.
Cook until the potatoes are cooked completely.
Mash the potatoes a little with the back of a spoon and simmer until the curry thickens.
Taste and adjust the seasonings.
Finish off with some chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with bread or rice.
