Super easy and tasty. Added peas and spinach for some green!

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.
