Top Tips For Making Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry
  • If you haven’t used can coconut milk often, keep in mind that sometimes that separates into layers while it’s in the can. That is completely normal and everything is fine. You can use a whisk to blend the milk back together and it will be perfect. 
  • Dice the sweet potatoes roughly the same size, and cut them into small cubes, so they cook evenly and quickly.
  • All curry powders vary in intensity and heat. If you are using a different brand of curry powder than the one I mentioned, make sure to taste your curry powder and the sweet potato curry itself while you're cooking to make sure it doesn't get too spicy and the flavors remain balanced.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 4-5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3-4 months.
