Sweet Potato Curry
I am a sweet potato lover now 🙂 The focus of that statement , being ” NOW “. I don’t recall being a fussy eater as a child , although some of my recent culinary ramblings focus on the ingredients I didn’t like as a kid , ( Raw Bananas , sweet potatoes and Eggs ). Life has come a full circle indeed 🙂
Paleo suggests that the Sweet potatoes are fantastic sources for Carbs. Also on why the Sweet Potatoes rank way above the Normal potato , you can read about it here. The key rule of Sweet potatoes in Paleo is to eat them in moderation. So , my meal plan includes the Sweet Potato once a week on an Active day.
This recipe is adapted from Flavours of Mumbai to make it Paleo compliant. I love this blog with the level of detailing and the procedures to explain the steps. With all the admiring , I skipped a whole lot of ingredients to make it simple as well.
- Boiled and peeled Sweet potatoes – 4 nos *
- 1 Onion diced into 1 inch cubes
- 1 Tomato diced into 1 inch cubes
- 3 Red Chilies ( Dry )
- Ginger 1 inch
- 4 to 5 Garlic cloves
- 10 to 12 Almonds ( For non paleo recipe , you can use Peanuts )
- Salt to taste
- A pinch of turmeric
- 2 tea spoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Coriander for garnish
- Cut the Boiled and Peeled Sweet potatoes into thin rounds of equal thickness
- Take a pan , add 1 teaspoon oil , fry the onions until pink and add tomatoes , Almonds , red chilies , ginger and garlic and fry them until they are brown. Blitz them in a mixer and make a fine paste
- In a pan , add the remaining oil and cook the mixture from Point 2 for a minute or two. Add turmeric and salt at this point and mix it well.
- Add the sweet potatoes in the curry and let them cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Garnish it with Coriander and serve.
*1 Sweet potatoes are softer than the normal potatoes. In a pressure cooker , they should be very well done in a matter of 2 whistles. If boiled very well , it is hard to manage them. Although the same curry can be used for it.
