Curry Cups



Potato Coconut Curry Cups


This Wednesday was an appetizer potluck at my sisters place. I decided to create a new recipe for my appetizer and created Potato Coconut Curry Cups. I had an open package of filo in my fridge that needed to be used. Plus recently I've been buying bags of potatoes to eat and needed to use some of them up as well.

At first I thought about boiling and mashing the potatoes with the coconut milk and spices and make sort of a filo samosa. (good thing I didn't because someone else bought samosa's). I then decided to just cube them small and saute them with onion, a lot of garlic and mess of indian spices including hot curry powder. After the potatoes were almost cooked I added about 1/2 a can of coconut milk to make the filling nice and creamy then added some fresh chopped cilantro.



the filling..

The filling came out so good I plan on making it again just as a side dish. I couldn't stop eating it. I told my friend Natalie that she'd be lucky to try one because I'd eat it all up. Alas I didn't eat it all and filled up some filo squares that I had brushed melted earth balance in between each layer of filo.



ready for the oven..

After placing them into mini cupcake pans (which were brushed with more earth balance) I brushed the top with even more earth balance...they were very decadent and delicious and everyone enjoyed them.

So, as soon as I finished reading about your curry cups, my stomach gave out a big rumble. I guess I better try my hand at making these now, or my stomach will really have it in for me. Thanks for the inspiration!
