    Has a fruity but nicely Asian sauce that is poured over the potatoes when they get done. Not your everyday stuff.

      These sweet potatoes are excellent. I have just started using sweet potatoes as a regular veggie instead of potatoes and enjoy them very much. I have trouble getting lemon grass so had to omit this and although nowhere like it I used a squeeze of lemon. Also Tamarind paste was missing from my cupboard and as I am familiar with the flavor I substituted a very well aged spoon of chutney (l996) and the sweetpotatoes were wonderful There was a tang to the flavor from the zest of lemon and the 1/2 tsp of cayenne. They were golden and complimented the colours of the broccoli and cauliflower on my plate. The meat was a plain seasoned grilled porkchop Great Meal thanks SueL

      I did love all of the ingredients in this, but was a little bit disappointed with how it all tasted together. We thought that the 5 hour cooking time was perfect for the sweet potatoes, but was not enough time for the onions, which were still a bit crunchy and very strong tasting. If I make this again, I'd brown the onions a little bit first. It was fun trying out this recipe, as it was a bit different from our usual dinners. Thanks for sharing.

      I enjoyed being able to use lemongrass and my Asian condiments. Very nice recipe which gets to stay in my cookbook.
