Cooking the curry powder for a minute before adding the sweet potatoes helps to deepen its flavor. For a spicier dish, use Madras curry powder instead of regular.

    I don't like the sweet potatoes in this recipe. I LOVE sweet potatoes, but didn't find them a natural fit for the rest of this recipe, also a bit watery, I prefer them baked or roasted. I might try it again with something else in their place. It was easy and quick.

    Very satisfying meal - didn't even miss the meat! I used spicy curry - wonderful flavor, and the end result was not spicy in the least, and I served this over brown rice. My husband loved it too!

    I am out of cauliflower, so I am going to use half a head of green cabbage instead and of course with me, I always use twice as much garlic (yes I know there is no garlic listed, and why isn't there?) My Indian friend always cooked with tons of garlic, tomatoes and chick peas and always white rice. I don't like whtite rice, but once in a blue mon okay. And I get the best Madras curry at Hung Thinh Supermarket on Normandy and Lane.

    I love curry and this one turned out pretty good. Excellent vegetarian dish. I ran out of mild curry powder after just a tbs or so, so I added a hot red curry paste. Also added a bit of garam masala powder, and I used red lentils. I didn't have plain yogurt, so I served this with a little creme fraish. Yum!

    We found this curry to be very bland, even though I used hot curry powder. I won't make this again!

    I made this and accidentally doubled the cauliflower, and the water. The portion was huge! But it was yummy, filling and healthy!

    I'd say you might use either. You need to be a little flexible with cooking and go with what you like and have on hand. Don't worry, it's not chemistry!

    your directions include "tomatoes and their juices" ... but there are no tomatoes listed under ingredients ... how many/much tomatoes? ... canned or fresh? ( .... thank you in advance for your reply)
