One of my favourite vegetables is the humble sweet potato – which tastes the best in this Srilankan-inspired sweet potato curry.Key flavours in this curry come from cinnamon and coconut milk. Srilankan cinnamon is of course the world's best, and those fragile rolls of cinnamon have a far more subtle flavour than the rough, dark cassia bark we use in India as cinnamon. Easy and quick, this mildly spiced dish is perfect for a summery dinner with rice.

3-4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3cms ( 1 ½ in pieces, about 500g )
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/4 cups cups water
1/2 cup coconut milk
Tempering:
1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 clove garlic ( crushed )
1 green chili ( sliced )
1 onion ( chopped fine )
1 dried red chili
5-10 curry leaves ( or 1 bay leaf )
2 tomatoes ( chopped fine )
2 tablespoons coconut oil
4 people
