Sigrid made it up!

A spicy combination of sweet potatoes, green beans and coconut milk.


1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped finely
5 ml1 tsp cumin seed
2 -3 Tbsp oil
5 ml1 tsp curry powder
5 ml1 tsp garam masala
5 ml1 tsp ground coriander
2 ml1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 can coconut milk
680 g1 1/2 lb sweet potato, cubed or half-slices
12-16 oz green beans, cut up
30 ml2 Tbsp fresh ginger, chopped or grated
salt and pepper, to taste
some chopped cilantro


Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into 1 inch cubes.
Wash and slice the green beans into pieces of desired length;
In a large pot, fry the cumin seeds, onion, ginger and garlic in the oil. Stir in all the ground spices.

Add the coconut milk, sweet potatoes, beans, ginger, a little salt and pepper and let everything simmer very gently, 20-30 min., stirring carefully and often.
By the time the vegetables are soft, the liquid from the coconut milk will have evaporated and made a thick sauce.

Taste whether you need to add a little more salt and pepper.

Serve with the chopped cilantro sprinkled on top.
