This creamy and hearty sweet potato and chickpea curry is likely to make appearances often on my menu during the upcoming months. It is really ridiculously easy to prepare, and so nourishing and pure. Simplicity is oftentimes the best sort of bliss.
What is distinctive about this curry is not only the creaminess, but the satisfying blend of hot and aromatic spices that accompany the sweet earthiness of the vegetables. Plump and buttery chickpeas add texture and balance, and present is also a nutty and citrus-y undertone that teases the palate. The whole experience is completed by the soothing qualities of silky coconut milk. Especially suited to the season as it is comforting and warming, I'd enjoy it anytime of year.
I used some of my homemade Thai red curry paste in this recipe, which I highly recommend, but it's not essential to the dish. You might add some extra chilies, or adjust the spicing accordingly. I also wanted a fairly thick curry, but you can adjust the water used to make it more soup-like.
I highly recommend serving this curry over a hot bed of fresh cooked white jasmine rice. It really completes the creamy experience. Needless to say, it's also a complete meal in itself.
