This curry is made with sweet potatoes and halloumi as the main ingredients, using coconut milk and crushed tomatoes as the base. This curry is very easy and quick to make, filled with lot of different spices that makes it both flavorful, a bit spicy and warm at the same time. It’s a wonderful combination of sweet and tender sweet potatoes, warm spices, a creamy curry base and salty warm fried halloumi cheese on top. It is perfect to serve for both lunch or dinner or to make for meal prep purpose. It is both vegetarian and gluten free.

A few tips:

  • Adjust the amount of chili and ginger depending on how spicy you prefer your curry.
  • Let the curry simmer for 15-20 minutes to let it reduce and make sure all the spices and flavors really come through.
  • Add the green kale just at the end. It should get warm and a little soft, but not mushy and overcooked.
  • Fry the halloumi just before ready to serve the stew.
