  • 150g sweet potato, peeled and roughly cubed

    Sweet potato

    sweet po-tate-toe

    Sweet potatoes have a creamy texture and a sweet-spicy flavour that makes them ideal for savoury…

  • 200g can peeled plum tomatoes
  • 200g can chickpeas, drained
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp mild curry paste
  • 50g baby spinach leaves
  • 1 tbsp chopped, fresh coriander
  • 2 plain chapatis (Indian flatbreads)
  • 2 tbsp fat-free Greek or natural yogurt


  1. Cook the sweet potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 10-12 minutes until tender. Meanwhile, put the tomatoes, chickpeas, chilli flakes and curry paste in another pan and simmer gently for about 5 minutes.

  2. Preheat the grill. Drain the sweet potatoes and add to the tomato mixture. Stir in the spinach and cook for a minute until just starting to wilt. Stir in the coriander, season to taste and keep warm.

  3. Sprinkle the chapatis with a little water and grill for 20-30 seconds each side. Spoon on the filling, top with yogurt and fold in half to serve.

Fantastic and really easy dish.

This is the about the 4th time I've made this. Today it was with a pots from the veggie patch, rather than "sweet" and lots more spinach than quoted. Either way, this is a great meal, and seems to get better once frozen or next day. Excellent results every time. :0)

Thought I had chickpeas in the cupboard at home but didn't so just added extra sweet potato. Was really filling and tasty

Couldn't find chapatis in the supermarket, so I used wholemeal tortilla wraps! What an international cuisine hey! Greek yoghurt, tortillas and curry paste!

I've just made this and loved it! Didn't have any chickpeas so added mushrooms and half a yellow pepper instead.
Thank you to Tan_Tan for the great chilli paste recipe! I didn't have any white wine vinegar but mashed everything good and proper with the pestle and mortar and it had a great consistancy anyway.

Goos recipe but I hate ready made curry paste, its much better to make your own curry paste using the following ingredients

1 1/4 tablespoons coriander seeds, dry-roasted and ground
1/2 tablespoon cumin seed, dry roasted and ground
1/2 teaspoon brown mustard seeds
1/4 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 crushed garlic clove
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 1/2-2 tablespoons white vinegar

Much much better :)

Tasty, cheap, filling, veggie, AND low-fat. What's going on?! This meal is amazing!

Very tasty! Foolishly I overcoooked the sweet potato so a bit mushy, but great all the same

I have been making this since it was printed in the Good Food magazine in 2002 and it is still delicious.
