Caashifa's Sweet Potato & Pea Mince Curry

TRH Caashifa's Sweetpotato & Pea Mince Curry
On a cold Cape Town winters night, warm food is always a blessing.
This hearty curry can be served with an array of low carb options, though I just made an easy flatbread with it for my carby’s
500g mince
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tspns tomato paste
1 large onion grated
1 large tomato grated
1 tspn ginger grated
2 tspns garlic grated
2 pieces stick cinnamon
4 cardamon pods bruised
1 tspn paprika
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp jeera / cumin
1 tsp koljaner / coriander
1/2 tsp bariship / fennel
Crack of himilayan pink salt
1 cup frozen peas
Sweet potato cubes (about 2 cups)
cardamom and stick cinnamon and cook until the bottom browns slightly.
Combine all the spices with the tomato paste and mix with enough water to make a runny paste.
Add this to the onion mix and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add a small amount of water to prevent the sauce from burning.
Add mince and give it a quick stir to loosen (I like to have smallish clumps of mince so i don’t stir too much at this point).
Add the sweet potato and cook covered for 10 minutes.
Add the frozen peas and cook a further 5 minutes. Add hot water if necessary but not too much.
The curry should not be too watery but the gravy should b thick and flavorful.
Add the coriander, stir and serve.
Serve with cloud bread – low carb wraps – caulirice – or low carb bread and a low carb tomato and onion sambal.
