I added a can of chickpeas an it added a much needed different texture. I also added a bit sirracha as my sweet potato was very sweet. I love this recipe as an easy week night go to to use up extra vegetables.

I have to review this cuz I tagged it. Otherwise I wouldn't rate it. I'm really sorry but this was bland like Shazzie quoted. I myself felt there was just too much coconut milk.

I'm afraid I found this dish tasted too overwhelmingly of coconut milk and tumeric without enough flavoursome spicy heat for my taste.
