Sweet Potato Curry is the best side dish for holidays and dinner parties. Super easy to make and chocked full of flavors!
I'm going to be honest with you guys. I could live on side dishes alone. Like seriously I could have side dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and probably for snacks too. So this holiday season where the side dishes are the stars of the recipes, is one of the most exciting ones for me!
Needless to say, I'm always brainstorming fun and new side dishes recipes. However I'm not easy when it comes to them, they have to be a lot of things to be made around here. First, they have to be incredibly delicious, the kind of delicious that knocks your socks off and has you asking for seconds and thirds. It also has to look elegant and fancy because if we are making something for a gathering or dinner party, beautiful food is a must. And third they have to be exotic, or different or at least not the same old same old that we get used to seeing around.
This sweet potato curry is all that and more. Becuase my friends this is the best flavor combo ever! It has the warmth of the curry and the little sweetness of the sweet potatoes all blended togethering in a literal explosion of flavors. I mean who doesn't like that?
I like to serve them with the curry on the side so everyone can pick their level of spiciness. That way if you are a huge curry fan you can pretty much slather your sweet potatoes with ALL THE SAUCE or keep things on the conservative side and just add a little bit.
However, my friends, trust me on this one and go big on the curry because it's totally and completely the most delicious thing ever.
