Spicy Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Spinach Curry

Spicy Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Spinach Curry
 There's nothing better than a warming curry on a wet and windy evening. This is a lovely robust veggie version that will keep you feeling full until breakfast - and I even convinced hubby, who usually isn't satisfied unless there is meat on his plate (although he's still unconvinced by chickpeas).

If you wanted a milder curry then use Korma curry paste instead of Rogan Josh. I served this with naan breads and mango chutney but if you wanted to stretch it a bit further then serve some pilau rice alongside.

  1. This looks so delicious and so easy! My kind of meal!! Am bookmarking.

  2. I agree completely that you can't beat a good curry! This one looks deliciously healthy and perfect for cold windy nights like tonight!

  3. Oh yum, I love curry although I would need to try it with the korma paste I think as no one at home is a big fan of hot food.
