Sweet Potato Curry


We just love Indian food and curry is one of our staples. The key to good curry is high quality spices, if you have the right balance and flavor with spices and herbs you can basically add in any vegetables you like or lentils, chickpeas or tofu. You can make the base with just tomato paste, only coconut milk or mix of the two. In addition you can totally make curry’s without using any oils and you can eat them with rice, millet, quinoa or potatoes if you desire, our favorite is basmati rice. Plus each of the spices and herbs you use have some health benefits, the same with veggies, so your curry is overall a really good and filling meal that is also healthy. I have few more different curry recipes in my blog, go ahead and try these also.
