This vegetarian sweet potato curry with chickpeas has long been on my to-do list. I finally dared to come up with a delicious and healthy recipe for this sweet potato curry. In this post I will show you how to prepare a great and vegetarian sweet potato curry with chickpeas and rice.

Actually, I’m not a big fan of oriental dishes, especially with oriental spices. But this curry has irritated me for a long time, so I finally got myself up and got all the relevant ingredients and spices in the Biomark. Then I just started cooking this super delicious curry.

Recipe for my sweet potato curry

My vegetarian curry is based on sweet potatoes, which are first seared extra hot to get nice roasted aromas. Later on, chickpeas are added to the sweet potatoes. The whole dish is rounded off with low-fat coconut milk, tomatoes and of course the aforementioned oriental spices. As a side dish, I traditionally opted for rice. This curry is also particularly tasty with naan bread. Very important: Be sure to use fresh coriander and lemon – these two ingredients round off the curry perfectly.
