Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry

Submitted by: KIMBERLEIGH06

Introduction

I got this recipe out of a Williams Sonoma cookbook. You can make this as spicy as you want it or as mild as you want it. With 2 jalapenos, it has a nice kick. One jalapeno, it has a milder spice. I prefer spicier :-) This dish is delcious served over steamed basmati rice (brown or white). I got this recipe out of a Williams Sonoma cookbook.

Heat oil and coconut in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger root, sweet potato, jalapeno, chickpeas, curry powder, onion and cook until onions are soft and sweet potato is thoroughly cooked.
