    Sweet potato

    sweet po-tate-toe

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

  • 400g tin coconut milk
  • 400g tin pineapple chunks



    With its tuft of spiky, dusty green leaves and cross-hatched, golden orange skin, the pineapple…


  1. Heat korma paste and toss with sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks.

  2. Pour in coconut milk and water then cook for about 15 mins or until the sweet potato is tender. Tip in pineapple chunks simmer for 2 mins, then season. Scatter with coriander and serve with naan bread.

Amazing, I added a red pepper, and I honestly can say this is one of the easiest meals I have ever made.....I make it now at least once a month! Sooooooooooooo Easy!! And the kitchen smells amazing too!!

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.

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.

followed tips from previous comments and left out the water and juice - ill do it again next time i made it. very simple to make and very tasty, easy enough for even me!

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
