Sweet potato and pea curry

To make this simple yet tasty, sweet curry, you will need:

2 tbsp vegetable oil

500g sweet potato, peeled and cubed

1 red onion, peeled and finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

2 cm piece root ginger, peeled and finely chopped

1 tsp ground cumin

2 tbsp mild Korma curry paste

1 tin chopped tomatoes

200ml vegetable stock

sea salt and black pepper

300g frozen peas

Juice of half a lemon

Handful of coriander, roughly chopped

peasHeat the oil in a large casserole or deep frying pan. Add the sweet potato and red onion and fry for 5 – 10 minutes, until the vegetables are starting to colour. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a further minute. Add the ground cumin and curry paste and cook, stirring constantly, for another minute. Add the tinned tomatoes and blend in the stock. Season with sea salt and black pepper and bring to the boil.

Simmer gently for 20 minutes, stirring regularly and topping up with extra stock if necessary, until the sweet potato has softened and is cooked through. Stir in the frozen peas and cook for a further 3 minutes. Adjust the seasoning and add the lemon juice. Stir through the chopped coriander and serve with steamed basmati rice, warm naan bread, yoghurt and chutney.
