A beautiful dish - it would never have occurred to me to use sweet potatoes in a Thai curry, but the sweetness works really well with the curry flavours! The scallions at the grocer's were looking rather sad so I used a small young leek instead. Added a teaspoon of dried kaffir leaf flakes (definitely recommend!) and served over jasmine rice. Thank you for a lovely recipe!
