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.

Ingredients:

  1. Boiled and peeled Sweet potatoes – 4 nos *
  2. 1 Onion diced into 1 inch cubes
  3. 1 Tomato diced into 1 inch cubes
  4. 3 Red Chilies ( Dry )
  5. Ginger 1 inch
  6. 4 to 5 Garlic cloves
  7. 10 to 12 Almonds ( For non paleo recipe , you can use Peanuts )
  8. Salt to taste
  9. A pinch of turmeric
  10. 2 tea spoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  11. Coriander for garnish

Procedure:

  1. Cut the Boiled and Peeled Sweet potatoes into thin rounds of equal thickness
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Add the sweet potatoes in the curry and let them cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Garnish it with Coriander and serve.

Notes

*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.
