Sweetpotato Curry

In my eyes there are two tricks to cooking a really tasty curry. The first: not using too much liquid, so that the finished curry is a creamy sauce instead of resembling a soup. The second and even more important trick: making a spice paste. This might sound more complicated than it actually is. I just brown onion, garlic and ginger in oil and then add a spice mix. The spices are toasted to maximize their flavor and then deglazed with liquid to form the “paste”.

1 piece ginger (approx. 1 cm x 1 cm)
