Looking for a delicious sweet and spicy soup to warm you up? This curried sweet potato soup is the one.
About the recipe
I made a delicious curried sweet potato soup that looked so good as it was cooking that I doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers. No surprise we liked it, given that it has all the Indian flavors that our family loves like ginger, garlic, onions, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and chili powder 😋.
Generous amount of ginger and aromatic spices give the soup that warming spicy dimension. While the sweet potato and coconut milk mellow everything out. Its sweet and spicy and creamy all in a one pot delicious soup.

In a large pot warm 2 tbsp oil. Add the onions, garlic and ginger and shallow fry until onions are tender.
