DIRECTIONS

  • Chop the onions if using a blender.
  • In food processor or blender, combine onions, garlic, hot pepper and ginger. Pulse until finely chopped.
  • Pour oil into large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add chopped onion mixture and saute until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add hot pepper flakes, ground ginger, ground coriander, cumin, turmeric, cardamom, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir to mix. Add sweet potatoes and stir until well covered in spices. Stir in coconut milk.
  • Dissolve tamarind paste in hot vegetable broth and add to pan. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until sweet potatoes are just tender, about 30 minutes or more. Taste potatoes to make sure they are cooked all the way and allow additional cooking time of necessary.
