Sri Lankan Inspired – Sweet Potato Curry

@thepeppercook

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.

4 people
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

Heat coconut oil in another large saucepan on medium heat. Add mustard and stir. When the mustard starts to sizzle, add other tempering ingredients except tomatoes, and cook until onions turn golden...
