This was really good, I also left out the water, and was left with a very tasty thick-ish sauce. I added a pepper too. I agree that it definitely takes longer than 20minutes to cook, the sweet potatoes took quite a while to soften. I added fresh pineapple and it was delicious.

I found this very watery but then again I did add 4oz of water and the juice from the pineapple chunks. I also had to cook it for about 35 mins too before the sweet potato was tender (used small chunks too rather than 'large' as stated in recipe...). It was very tasty and would make again but next time I'd leave out the water and pineapple juice.

Why does the recipe say to add coconut milk & water - there is no water on the list of ingredients. How much water needs to be added? Also should the pineapple be drained or do you add the juice too?

Wow it looks exactly the same as the Squash & coconut curry ;)The pineapple was a surpirsing twist, and it was quite tasty, but too sweet for my taste.

Really scrummy - I'm a student and was able to throw this together while revising (honestly) for my exams. Quick, easy and really tasty!

I've made this on numerous occasions. Always a success. I've also used fresh pineapple cooking it for slightly longer than tinned.

Wonderful, quick tasty vegetarian dish, I make this regularly for a bring a share supper, and have shared the recipe so many times. When I dont make it, its requested for the following month. Wonderful, although we make it slightly spicier!

This is incredibly easy and really delicious. The recipe picture looks like there is red pepper in it but doesn't say so on the recipe, but I add it anyway. Even the most novice of cooks can throw this together. Fantastic
