This made a nice light, quick meal. I didn't have tamarind paste so I substituted tomato paste, and added a chopped tomato as well. Next time I would add more veggies, like carrots and/or spinach. It wasn't super filling but had a nice kick to it and pretty good flavor. Overall I would say it was good, not great.

This is a tasty recipe. I took a simplified approach whereby I combined all the spices, the onion, garlic, tamarind and ginger in a food processor to make a paste. I sauted the sweet potatoes a bit in the paste, and added some red bell pepper slices as a substitute for the chickpeas (I was making a different chickpea curry that night, too). Then I just added the coconut milk and let simmer. I didn't bother with the broth, just added milk if more moisture was needed. The color of the curry left a bit to be desired, just kind of a drab brownish, but overall, a tasty curry.

I was so scared to try this recipe - as I am not a big fan of meatless dishes. However, it was fantastic! Very filling, as it is really starchy when paired with rice. However, I really enjoyed it, and so did my bf! Thanks!

Wow, this veggie dish is so delicious! It's like I'm not really fond of these ingredients but after trying this, I really liked it! I served this with Cranberry Wild Rice Pilaf and Spicy Yam Curry and I sure enjoyed my meal! Thanks for sharing this, H! Made for ZWT4.

Fantastic curry that was wolfed down by a group of exchange students (including two vegetarians). I didn't have enough sweet potato, so diced and added some zucchini I had on hand. Otherwise made as written.

Great Comfort food here! I cut the recipe for 2 but use enough chickpeas for 4 becuase I had a large can of them used 2 cloves of garlic, 10 onces coconut milk and canned tamarind nectar skipping the broth. Served over rice. And have leftover for 2 more. ;)
