How to make sweet potato curry.
Cut the onion and place it in a pot. Add oil to it and fry for 2-3 minutes. Next, add minced garlic, chili pepper, sweet paprika powder, grated ginger, cardamom, tandori masala, turmeric and cumin. Fry for a minute and add the sweet potatoes cut into 3 cm thick cubes, water, canned tomatoes and salt. Simmer on a low heat until the potatoes are soft and begin falling apart.

God to know when making vegetable curry.
The best is to buy canned tomatoes which are already chopped. If you get one which are not, either cut them or blend them first before adding them to the curry.
I added fresh ginger but you can also use powdered one.
The potatoes can be cut into larger or smaller cubes.
