I love Thai food and Thai recipes don't get much tastier or easier than this. Made as written (after stealing some lime leaves from a neighbour's tree). I almost always have these ingredients on hand, so I will make this often. Thanks very much for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat sunflower oil in a large preheated wok or saucepan.
  2. Thinly slice the chicken. Add the chicken to the pan and stir fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic, curry paste, ginger, tamarind and lime leaves to the pan and stir fry about a minute more.
  4. Peel and dice the sweet potato. Add the coconut milk and sweet potato to the mixture in the pan and bring to a boil. Allow to bubble over a medium heat for 20 minutes, or until juices start to thicken and reduce.
  5. Add the cherry tomatoes and cilantro to the curry and cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to serving plates and serve hot with cooked rice.
