Yellow curry with sweet potato, carrots and green beans




Today I want to share the recipe for this wonderfully full flavoured vegetarian curry.   Vegetarian or plantbased curries are by no means boring – they are flavorful and there are so many different kinds. I made this yellow curry to my family over easter and it was a big success.This curry is with sweet potato, carrot green and  beans and a fragrant coconut sauce. This vegetarian curry hits all the right notes it’s  hearty, loaded with vegetables and ready in under 30 minutes.To make a good plantbased curry or any kind of curry for that matter, the right spices and key ingredients such as lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves are essential. Serve this curry with rice/ quinoa or side of naan. Garnish the curry with fresh herbs (  parley or coriander)

P.s for behind the scene follow me on instagram.
