Fantastic recipe! This is a really great way to use Tempeh and the sweet potatoes are a nice addition. I like mine a little creamier than this so I add a bit more coconut milk. The tamarind is nice, but I will often use an orange or tangerine if its not handy.
This recipe was simply delicious. A mix of sweet, sour and spicy flavours. An exotic look and taste, softened by the smooth coconut sauce. The tempeh is a perfect match to the sweet potato. We loved it and we will repeat this culinary experience in the future as many times as possible! ;)
Sorry but this was not to our taste. Made it just as stated and found it to be very bland. None of the spices came through. I had so much hoped that it would be a curry to our liking since we like all the ingredients, but alas. I am glad I tried it though. Thanks for posting.
