This is my new favorite curry! This creamy sweet potato curry is super tasty and healthy. It is also quick and easy to make. A feel-good dish that you have to try!

Creamy Sweet Potato Curry

I love sweet potatoes and I am very happy to present you my first recipe with sweet potatoes! Especially by adding Indian curry paste the dish has turned out very flavorful. I am a big fan of this meal and it will definitely be served more often 🙂 You can add the vegetables you like most. The mixture with spinach makes the curry even creamier and chickpeas are a must-have in my curry. The dish is very mild and very simple to make like my yellow Thai curry recipe. If you prefer spicy curry I recommend adding chili or you can try the green Thai curry.

Ingredients Sweet Potato Curry

For this healthy sweet potato curry you need the following ingredients:

  • Sweet potatoes: Sweet potatoes are essential for this recipe. Alternatively, you can also use regular potatoes. I also like to use them in all my other curry recipes. Sweet potatoes are also rich in vitamins A and E and beta carotene. That’s why sweet potatoes are a real power food and if you like the sweet taste, I recommend including them more often in your diet!

  • Curry paste: For this recipe, curry paste is very important but it doesn’t matter which one you use. I like this dish best with an Indian curry paste. In this case, I used a Madras paste which is very mild. But I also find the yellow curry paste perfect for the dish.

  • Coconut milk: I prefer to use coconut milk with a full-fat content as the dishes get richer and creamier.

  • Spinach: Spinach is a very low-calorie vegetable and at the same time very healthy. Spinach is high in iron and vitamins. Spinach makes the curry even creamier and super delicious. But you could also add broccoli or cauliflower. Especially roasted cauliflower tastes heavenly in curry.

  • Chickpeas: Of course the proteins should not be missing. Legumes are rich in protein and also very delicious. I normally put chickpeas in all my curry recipes. Fun Fact: As soon as I cook the curry half the can is usually empty… 😀

  • Tomatoes & Spices: Garlic cloves, onion, turmeric, and cumin. You can add a few delicious spices as you like. Do you want to make the curry hotter? Then use chili or chili powder.

The dish is also perfect for Meal Prep. You can store it for a week in a closed container in the fridge or freeze it and take it out of the freezer as needed! 🙂
