Used different ingredients. Added a garlic clove and a teaspoon of cumin - 20 Oct 2009


Altered ingredient amounts. I left the peel on the sweet potato, added three bricks out of five of the ready made curry paste, used regular coconut milk, and one fourth cup of xylatol to sweeten it just a bit. I also added a bit extra curry powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper to my serving because I like it extra hot. It's hearty, and vegetarian, too! - 26 Dec 2009
