Cook the curry powder for 30 seconds to about 1 minute, it should become fragrant, then add the chopped potatoes. Stir or toss the potatoes gently until they are covered in the seasoning.
Increase the heat on the element to a medium heat. Cook the potatoes for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add the finely chopped tomatoes and the turmeric, coriander seasoning, honey, sea salt and pepper; then stir to combine. Lastly mix in the remaining 3/4 cup of purified water.
Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and allow the potatoes to cook in this mixture for 8 to 10 minutes or until potatoes begin to soften, but are still firm. Check and stir periodically to prevent burning. When potatoes are ready, remove the lid and add the sweet peas to the mixture; allow to cook for a couple of minutes. Next add the yogurt and the fresh chopped herbs, mix to combine. Allow mixture to cook for a couple more minutes before giving it a taste test. Adjust the seasonings to suit personal taste.
