Here is the most wonderful creamy sweet potato curry recipe that you need to try. It’s spicy, sweet and full of flavor. This sweet potato recipe has veggies and curry spices in it that elevate the recipe. Your going to love it.

I was having a craving for some curry. So into my pantry I went and found some sweet potatoes, which made me think of a sweet potato and veggie curry. It sounded healthy and yummy. I’ve never made it before but I love sweet potatoes and curry, so the two together would have to be good. All the spices with the coconut milk is so creamy and flavorful.

I like my curry spicy and I had yellow curry powder and chili powder in my spice rack so that’s what I used. I’m telling you that you should always keep key spices for foods you enjoy in your kitchen. I have my to go to favorites that I am never out of. Then of course I have to have cilantro in it, my favorite herb. All blended together made the most amazing curry dish. The sweet potatoes took it over the top. Who would have thought

Its a healthy recipe, I know it has carbs, but they are healthy carbs. And as I always say everything in moderation is ok. So this would be a great recipe for a diabetic and a low carb diet. You have to be carful on the amount you eat. Also to keep the carbs down don’t pair it with rice, maybe use cauliflower rice or bean sprouts. I eat it more like a soup with nothing else. If your not watching you carb intake then serve it with a bowl of rice or some noodles is amazing.
