Aubergine and Sweet Potato Coconut Curry

Oh my days. I think I may be getting my curry groove back. Being half Sri-Lankan this type of food is just genetically in me, it makes my soul happy. However life with small children has meant I haven’t cooked many spicey dishes for a while. I’m slowly aiming to get them all onto spicer food, meanwhile I decided to get a friend over so I could cook this dish.

I served this with some simple rice noodles, cooked then stir fried quickly with 1tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 tbsp sesame seeds, chopped spring onions and beetroot leaves plus stalks.
