Sweet Potato & Coconut Curry

This delicious curry is full of flavour and takes only 30 minutes to prepare! It is my favourite curry and I often take the leftovers into work to have for lunch the next day! It is vegan and gluten-free! I like to cook the rice in with the sauce to save on washing up!


Serves 4

1tbsp               Coconut Oil

1                      Leek

1tsp                 Nigella Seeds

2cm                 Root Ginger

1tsp                 Mustard Seeds

1tsp                 Fennel Seeds

1tsp                 Poppy Seeds

1tsp                 Ground Cumin

1tsp                 Ground Coriander

½ tsp               Ground Cinnamon

½ tsp               Ground Cloves

600ml              Filtered Water

75g                  Frozen Peas

2                      Small Sweet Potatoes

150g                Basmati Rice

75g                  Creamed Coconut

¼ tsp               Pink Crystal Salt

¼ tsp               Black Pepper

Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over a low heat. Chop up the leek and add to the pan. Finely chop the 2cm piece of ginger and add to the pan followed by the seeds. Leave to cook for 5 minutes.

Now quickly add in the spices so they don’t burn. Slowly add in the filtered water. Wash and chop up the sweet potatoes into chunks. Add to the pan with the peas. Rinse the rice in cold water and add to the pan followed by the creamed coconut.

Bring to the boil, then simmer for 12 minutes. Stir occasionally and add in extra water if necessary. Season with salt and pepper.

Scoop into a bowl and serve immediately.

Store any leftovers in a container in the fridge and eat within 3 days.
