Sweet potato and chickpea curry

April 13, 2016

Sweet Coconut

My go to curries usually feature coconut, I love sweet curries especially on fragrant rice or with a herbed naan.  I will never forget the first curry I ever made from a student cookbook,  looking back I realise how far I have come and how confident I have grown in the kitchen.  I am more willing to explore new flavours and go completely out of my comfort zone.   I found an Indonesian based curry paste in a local supermarket and decided to try it with an Indonesian curry recipe I found in one of my student cook books.  I do not have a great deal of experience with curries in terms of cooking but when my taste buds are excited that’s enough for me to recognise good food.
