Curry Bodi With Potatoes {Recipe}

A little while back I was preparing a meal for one of my college friends who was coming for a first-time visit.  I wanted something Caribbean and vegetarian, so I searched Youtube again and found a dish called "Curry Bodi with Potatoes."

I decided that I better try this bodi dish before my guests arrive, plus I bought a new curry powder and wanted to sample its flavor beforehand so I can adjust accordingly.  I didn't have any bodi (hadn't even heard of bodi before finding this recipe) so I used string beans instead.  Later I made this dish for my aunt after a trip to the Asian Market, but their shipment of bodi was coming the next day so I used an American long bean which I was told was a bit sweeter.  It was still good and actually easier to handle.  Maybe one day I will actually get my hands on some bodi.  So what is bodi?  This is bodi - these super long string bean like beans.  Also called long beans and snake beans.

And if you're wondering if it was good.  The answer is YES!  If you're wondering if my friends enjoyed it as much as I did, well, the answer is no because they were unable to come at the last minute.  Now, I'm going to surprise them with something different the next time our schedules coincide.  :-)

  1. We love dishes with curry. Our favorite is red curry chicken, it's a thai dish. The red curry is a little bit hotter than yellow curry and you make the dish with coconut milk. It's amazing. You can see it you here I will have to try your dish. It looks yummy.

  2. Anything with beans and potatoes are the best! Looks yummy!

  3. This looks delicious Libby! I love curry in the cold months so I will keep this in mind. This is the first I have heard of bodi too. It looks like a cool veggie!!!

  4. Mmm, I love anything with curry in it! This looks and sounds really good too. Thanks for sharing! New follower. Yay for being blog friends! :)
