Spicy Sausage and Potato Curry

1lb of sausage
1 large onion chopped
4 potatoes peeled and cubed
2 serrano chiles sliced
20-25 curry leaves
1 small piece of cinnamon stick
3-4 cloves of garlic grated
1 inch of grated ginger
1 cup of diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
1 tsp of  vinegar
1 cup of water
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp of chili powder (or to taste)
1/2 tsp of turmeric
4-5 green cardamom pods
3-4 cloves
1 Tbs of curry powder ( I used American Curry powder by McCormick)

In a large pan add 1 Tbs of canola oil on med-high heat.  Once heated first add the curry leaves, cinnamon stick, cardamoms, cloves and fry for 30 seconds.  Then add the onions, potatoes, sausage, chilies and fry for another minute.  Now add your grated ginger and garlic and fry for another 1-2 minutes.  Finally add salt, pepper and your dry spices.  Stir well and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Then add your crushed tomatoes, vinegar and 1 cup of water.  Allow everything to simmer for 15-20 minutes or until your potatoes are fork tender and the sausage is cooked through.

Add 1 cup or half a can of coconut milk and simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Taste for salt here.

Serves 4-6.   This dish goes well with any rice and curry meal or with flat breads like roti, naan, chapathi.  Enjoy.
