From Food and Drink Magazine Autumn 2006. An unusual curry for the curry aficionado. West Indian Curry is slightly different-the mix of spices is a little sweeter with more cinnamon, anise and turmeric in it and there is no chili. You can add the lethally hot Scotch bonnet chilies into this or use hot sauce to spike it up afterwards. You can purchase West Indian curry powder, if desired. You can also turn this into an Indian curry by using Indian curry powder or paste. This is an interesting method to make this dish. You actually just reheat the meat in the curry mixture when needed, making it perfect for elegant entertaining. West Indian sweet potato is called boniato and it is drier than our sweet potatoes. If it is not available, use sweet potato.
