Method

 
Heat oil in a medium sized saucepan, then add onion and garlic, sauteeing over medium heat until softened.
Add potatoes, salt, ginger, garam masala, turmeric and cumin and stir to coat the potatoes with the spices.
Cook, uncovered over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring a few times to prevent the potatoes sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Add a little bit of water, if necessary, to prevent burning.
Stir in the tomato paste and chopped tomatoes, bring to a boil, then turn heat down to a simmer, cover and cook another 10 - 15 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
Add peas and mix through.
Cook another 2 -3 minutes to defrost peas and distribute heat evenly.

Serve as is or with rotis and basmati rice.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
