  1. Peel and finely dice the onion and garlic. Peel and chop the sweet potato into chunks. Heat the oil in a large sauce pan on a medium heat, add onions and fry slowly stirring frequently. When softened add the garlic, keep stirring to avoid burning.
  2. Add the curry paste and stir to coat. Cook for a few minutes so that the paste loosens up a bit, then add in the chickpeas and sweet potato and stir. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and cover, reduce to a gentle simmer for 30 minutes or until the potato is soft.
  3. Warm the naan bread in the oven or grill. Roughly chop the coriander and mix with the yoghurt in a small dish, serve with the curry and naan bread.

*Add a little water as necessary for the sauce to suit your preferences.

No sweet potato in the veg rack? Substitute with butternut squash or even pumpkin - both equally as yummy in this curry dish.
