I always wondered why God made sweet potatoes.
I've never liked sweet potatoes. They've got a cloying sweetness that I find repulsive, sort of reminiscent of overcooked carrots. But the farmer's market is absolutely flooded with them; I mean they are everywhere - cheap, abundant and fresh - I had to find a way to eat them.
I posted this problem on a cooking forum that I frequent, and the very first response turned out to be the best - make a curry.
What a great idea; and man, I have to say, it was really, really good. Second attempt at home made naan bread wasn't bad either.
