    Sweet potatoes

    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.

Very tasty dish, made the korma paste myself though and added some garlic. Didn't add water to it, the coconut milk was enough. Will make again.

Disappointed to see a Korma paste was used...... not really a recipe as you are just following the instructions on the side of the paste jar!

Made this dish with an onion as well - it was okay but nothing special. Sauce was a little runny and was quite sweet so I added a bit of chilli powder.

Nice enough and couldn't be easier. Definitely benefits from frying some sliced shallots and garlic and adding them to the main dish along with the coconut milk. Don't buy sweet potatoes which are too big and don't make the chunks too big otherwise they can end up undercooked.

Such a simple dish to make. I did add an onion and made my own korma paste. I used fresh pineapple as that is what l had. I was worried that the dish would be overly sweet. It wasn't at all. It was really good and will definitely be made again.

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.

It wasn't the most tasty curry I have had but it was ok and very easy to make

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 peasy. Thumbs up for a quick healthy after work dinner.

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).
