Really easy to make; it's a nice veggie option and keeps in the fridge for quite a while

This was a great veggie week day dinner, suitable for batch freezing. I added a level teaspoon of garam masala, a shake of turmeric and fried one garlic clove with the onion. It was lovely and tasty and I will definitely make again. Thanks Good Food!

I am forever making this curry and it's been a favourite of mine since I started at Uni. It's very quick and easy and always makes a lovely thick curry that acts as a fantastic evening meal. I often substitute a few things though as I never use coconut milk ( just add more stock) and I never use sweet potato and it still makes a lovely curry :) Well worth trying.

love making this recipe as its so simple and you can use whatever left over veg you have lying around. i made it with green beans and some broccoli stems instead of peas and it tasted great, quite a mild flavour so i also added some extra curry paste. made it for my mum and she loved it too

I do love sweet potatoes. New thought of making it in a curry though ESPECIALLY one without any chicken. Try piri piri chicken with sweet potatoes. Now THOSE are amazing. http://bit.ly/student-recipes-piri-piri-chicken

yummy basic recipe that I made to 'introduce' my unadventurous boyfriend to curry. quite plain but has the potential to be adapted such as adding spinach or chicken as suggested.

This was quick, cheap and filling, but certainly not exciting (although perfectly pleasant). I used a Madras paste in anticipation of it not having much 'oomph' otherwise, and am glad I did so (it was a Patak's paste...def the best!). Next time I would use a little less stock and would increase the amount of sweet potato and slightly reduce the amount of 'normal' potato.

first time I cooked this I used a leftover can of coconut milk, I think it was about 275 ml and it was delecious. I just now made it again, this time using the correct amount of coconut milk, and now it tastes a little to sweet and coconutty for my taste. Also I had to thicken the sause with corn starch. So next time, less liquid, less coconut and maybe I'll try adding some chickpeas, I bet they work well too.

I've made this curry with carrots and green cabbage instead of sweet potato a few times, it was just as good as the original recipe in case there are no sweet potatoes around.
