Sweet potato curry with paneer

    40 mins

    A light, colourful curry that is very quick and easy to make, this is packed with anti-oxidant-rich vegetables. Sweet potatoes, in particular, are an excellent source of betacarotene and vitamin C, and have a higher vitamin E content than any other vegetable. Serve with naan bread. This can be vegan if you substitute tofu for the paneer.
