  1. In a pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic, curry powder and ginger and saute for 30 sec or until softened. Add carrots, sweet potato and red pepper and saute for about 5 min or until carrots start to soften.
  2. Stir in broth and 1/2 tsp (1 ml) salt. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 10 min or until vegetables are almost tender.
  3. Whisk flour into cream and stir into pan with chickpeas and green peas. Simmer, stirring, for about 3 min or until sauce has thickened and peas are hot. Season to taste with salt. Serve topped with yogurt and with lime wedges to squeeze over top.


  • Leftovers of this curry taste great. Let any leftovers cool, transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat, adding a little more cream or broth, over medium heat in a saucepan or on Medium-High (70%) power in the mircrowave.
  • For the Adventurous: Increase the curry powder to 4 tsp (20 ml) and add 1 minced hot pepper or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp (1 to 2 ml) cayenne pepper with the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle each serving with chopped fresh cilantro.

Loved this! Used the coconut milk and a little broth. Green beans instead of peas, fresh ginger. Sprinkled a little coconut on top and golden raisins. Yum!

Lovely. The only substitutions I made were because I didn't have yogurt and sweet potato. I used sour cream and regular potatoes instead. The sour cream and lemon made a big difference in the f...
