Slow Cooker Sunday – Potato Goan Soup 16 Sept 12

Have you used your slow cooker this week?

I’m making a slight change to Slow Cooker Sunday this week, where we share our slow cooker recipes.  Please do keep linking up all of your recipes.  But for those of you who don’t have time to blog or don’t have a blog, feel free to just send me a photo via twitter using the hashtag #scsunday and don’t forget to tell me what it is.

I  can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to.  This week, using a new Soup Recipe book I modified a recipe and made Goan Potato Soup!  It was delicious and we served it with Vegetarian Samosas!

Potato Goan Soup

  • Serves 4
  • Cooking Time 6-7 hours
  • Temp: Low


  • 2 TBSP of sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp of black mustard seeds
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and chopped
  • ½ tsp of ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp of Cayenne Pepper
  • 900g of potatoes, peeled and cut into bite size cubes
  • 1 heaped TBSP of dry curry leaves
  • 750 ml water
  • Couple handfuls of frozen spinach
  • 400ml of coconut milk
  • Salt and Pepper


1.) Heat the oil in a frying pan.  Add the mustard seeds and cook until they begin to pop.  Add the onion and chilli and cook for 5-6 minutes until the onion is soft.  Stir in the Turmeric, Cayenne, Potatoes, Curry Leaves and water.  Bring to a boil and transfer to the slow cooker, on low, for about 6 hours.

2.) 30-45 minutes before serving, stir in the spinach and coconut milk.  Ensure it is piping hot before serving.

3.) Season with salt and pepper to taste

4.) Serve with Samosas, you can make your own, but I bought mine from the Deli at Morrisons, 10 for £1.50
