Much more filling than you would think! we are very big eaters but had left-overs. Really tasty although we did use a medium-heat curry paste which we thought worked well. Recommended!

I made this to the recipe but I added some chopped baby spinach at the end. I found it too sweet for me. I think I would put white potatoes or more lentils next time as a substitute for the sweet potato.

Added some chopped red chilli to this when I added the peas, makes it a real curry! The sweet potatoes give it a really nice, different taste.
