Sweet potato and pea curry with coconut milk

Sweet potaoes are another of those vegetables that I'm never quite sure what to do with, so they usually end up in soup. However, I think I'll be making this really simple curry more frequently. Unfortunately, I was so busy eating it that I forgot to take any pictures.

1 onion, peeled and sliced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
2 tsps good quality curry powder
2 good-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
400g coconut milk
100g petit pois

  1. Fry the sliced onion in oil. When it is nearly done, add the garlic, fry for another 30 seconds or so, add the curry powder, fry for a few seconds more, then add the sweet potatoes, coconut milk and salt.
  2. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce to minimum and simmer gently for about 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are soft. Add the petit pois, heat through and serve.
