Curried Potatoes with Tomatoes and Peas

The verdict on this dish was, KEEPER! I was nervous putting a jalapeno, curry paste, and chili powder on the potatoes – I thought it was too much heat. BUT, between the garden fresh tomato I crushed and sugar the flavors blend beautifully.

5-6 New Potatoes, cut into bite size chunks

Boil the potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes.
In a large skillet, heat the oil on medium-high heat and add the potatoes, cook 4-5 minutes until they begin to brown.
To the skillet add the tomatoes, jalapeno, paprika, curry paste, chili powder, sugar and salt. Cook 5 minutes.
Add the peas and cook another 5 minutes.
