Lovely recipe. I fried an onion first, added 3 tbsp of Madras paste instead of Korma, and like others only used the coconut milk, no water. I also added a bag of raw prawns 3-4 mins from the end, with the pineapple, just to make it more substantial. We loved it, and so easy.

Great recipe. Consider adding more paste and onions as a minimum. I like my sweet potatoes a little softer so adding the water with the paste helps. I finish this with a little double cream swirled in at the end (off the heat) for a little more depth.

This was so tasty... after a few additions, thought it sounded nice but potneially a bit bland so added onion, garlic, fresh chilli, red pepper and red lentils. Delicious!

What a great tasty meal, my daughter cooked this for our family get together, we all loved it! She added onion, pepper, mushrooms, quorn pieces and fresh pineapple, loved the sweet taste which was perfect, just enough. She served with rice, naan bread and poppadums', I can`t wait to try this myself, would definitely recommend.

Very tasty, quick recipe for 2 people. Also omitted to water, added onion, garlic and red pepper alongside 2 1/2 tablespoons of korma paste. Made sure to cut the sweet potato into large but thin chunks and all seemed to cook in 18-20 minutes.

I loved this recipe. So quick and tasty! I omitted the extra water (the coconut milk was enough!) and also added a red pepper and 2tbsp red lentils. The timings were perfect. Will definitely make again soon!

I absolutely loved this one! Like many others I omitted the water as well, and I actually added a little extra korma paste for some extra taste. Served on a naan as suggested and it was amazing. Will deffinately make this again.

Swapped the pineapple for mango chunks and was delicious, even just without any rice or naan bread.

Very easy to make, I would not recommend putting in water as its already the nice consistency. Made this for my mum she loved it! Only downside is it was very sweet but if you like that then this is a perfect dish for you!

I added a red pepper and didn't use any water. It was still a bit thin (thin enough to warrant spoons instead of forks), I imagine it will be just right tomorrow. Sweet potatoes did take much longer than stated, too. Despite all that, it was a really easy supper to throw together, and quite tasty too. The pineapple lends a really nice flavour to the usual korma. I would have given it 4 stars if it hadn't been for the inaccuracies in the recipe.

Easy to make, but it was too sweet. It also took much longer for the sweet potato to cook than suggested (I based the size on the recipe picture).

I used sultanas rather than pineapple and added spinach and a sweet pepper. Big hit with everyone.

this was VERY scrummy (even if it was on the hob for 5 hours). I was unsure of how much water to add so I chucked in a whole bucket full. It was swimming in the stuff! lovely. It doesn't instruct you to take the coconut milk or pineapple out of the tin, so it was very difficult to cut. And I quite like pineapple. I popped the peppers in and they were fabulous, but I forgot to cut them up. I would advise 5 in order to get really full. As flembot states, 'This is incredibly easy and really delicious.' Amen.
