This Indian spice pot flavoured with korma paste is mild enough for kids- the sweet potato stretches it a little further

One of my favourite dishes to make and eat. The sweet potato really does make this. I use Patak's korma paste. Great to freeze

Made this today. Newbie cook so nice easy one as I'm learning. Lots of flavour. I cut the sweet potato chunks bite size and had no problem with them cooking in the time stated. My 4 yr old loved it. Can someone tell me can I freeze it? And could I prepare it all or part of it earlier in the day? Thanks

Fantastic curry. Simple to make yet full of flavour. Very mild : suitable for everyone. As others have suggested, I recommend parboiling the sweet potatoes for 10 minutes. Give it a go if you can. Delicious.

Easy to make and lovely! We cut the sweet potato into half the size of a dice and they were cooked fine in just over 20mins.

Lovely recipe. I found the sweet potato was fine in the time given so no need to parboil in my opinion. Really tasty.

Made this evening - a very quick and easy midweek meal. I used a tad more paste than stated and although not a hot curry at all, the spicing is lovely. I parboiled the potatoes for 5-7 minutes and simmered the curry for 30 minutes in total. I even had enough left for a portion to pop in the freezer. Will definitely make again, might try adding mushrooms next time.

Very easy to make and very tasty. Par boiled the sweet potatoes as advised and it was cooked in no time, had it with brown basmati rice and was great. Would recommend for anyone to try

Delicious! Some very fussy eaters, all with varying tastes in my house but this went down a treat. The kids even wanted seconds! As previously recommended, par boil the sweet potato before adding into the curry.

This really is a fabulous dish. Very tasty, healthy and easy to make. I just increased the cooking time to a total of 1 hour to soften the potatoes properly and ensured that the pan was covered for half the time.

average curry I would say but fine for a mid week quick meal - made 3 portions with rice and I blitzed the leftovers into 2 large portions of soup for work

Definitely a good idea to part boil the sweet potato beforehand! Really tasty meal.

This is a very easy tasty curry. Even after a longer cook (the chicken thighs are so much more tender than breast usually is), there is ample liquid so don't add more. Scrummy.
