Spinach and Sweet Potato Curry

As promised, here is another curry that will warm you up from head to toe.  We are finally going to experience our first substantial snowfall of this season, (which is projected to be a blizzard), so what better way than to celebrate with a couple of hearty and robust curries.  The paneer dish (Indian cheese) below was replicated from Naina’s Blog “Spice in the City”.  Take a peek around her blog, it is simply amazing with an array of recipes all strikingly showcased. I especially liked the creaminess of this dish derived from the ground cashews with a dollop of sour cream.  I made a few adjustments to her recipe, but if you’d like her full recipe, click here.

The Spinach and sweet potato curry had an element of hot and sweet.  We typically don’t eat hot curries, so just a hint of heat with a mild sweetness is what made this curry outstanding.  Do click right here to get the full recipe.

Adding my dishes to Angie’s Fiesta Friday #103  where Sonal @ simplyvegetarian777 and Petra @ Food Eat Love will be there to co-host and greet us.  Thanks fondly ladies.


  1. I love hot and sweet flavors together Loretta. So will be marching over for the recipe. Your photos are just drool worthy! We’ve had snow since before Christmas, and up to 5 inches more today. It’s a perfect day to stay inside and cook away. Have to go out though (whining). Hope you enjoy your beautiful day.

    1. Thanks Julie. I enjoy the styling part of the photo shoot, so take a little extra time to set up my wares these days:). However the hard part is having to cook in the mornings to get that natural daylight during these dreaded winter evenings :). You’ve had snow since Christmas? wow! We’re expecting our first snowfall this weekend, but it will be nice to just kick back and relax since it is the weekend and the roads won’t be as crazy! Always nice to have you visit and grace my blog :)

    1. Ha ha Ana, I’d never heard or seen a sweet potato curry before either. I just made that up. :). It actually should have squash in it, but I didn’t have squash and the sweet potato gave it a nice sweetness to it, and the other ingredients added the pungency, so a great combination. Thanks for popping over Ana.

    1. Thanks as always Freda, you’re so kind. Would you believe it if I told you I got that silver serving dish from Goodwill? It features beautifully in some of the dishes that I’ve served it in before. :)

    1. Thanks Sonal, always look forward to a visit from you. Hey have you ever seen a sweet potato curry before? I made that up :). I did not have squash in my refrigerator but some sweet potato, and wow, it was really good, as it added a subtle sweetness and pungency when paired with the spinach and other Indian ingredients. Your girls will love it.

    1. Thank you Fae, as always so kind and encouraging. No, the sweet potato part was made up, I really needed squash, but did not have any, so grabbed the sweet potato. I must say it was a winning combination with the spinach and other Indian spices. Thanks for noticing the collage, I certainly enjoyed making that up and selecting the various pictures. Have a wonderful day!


  2. Thank you so much for the shout out Loretta! You are too sweet! Your version looks mouthwatering! And love that sweet potato curry! I didnt get a ping back funnily, but saw the message u left on my post! Weird WordPress :D Enjoy the snow, we are having a lot here as well, inspiring a lot of rich food :D

    1. Thank you Naina. Glad I alerted you then, I don’t get ping backs either for whatever reasons. I saw that a few folks did check out your post. I can’t complain about the impending blizzard since we’ve had such a mild winter thus far…..but after the first day of the first snowfall, I usually want everything to be back to normal, but it never is. Ha ha!


    1. Thanks Nancy, we don’t eat too spicy here either, but just pleasantly pungent. The two curries went well together, rice would be a perfect accompaniment too. Thanks for stopping by.


    1. Thanks Johanne, I certainly love playing with my dishes before actually sitting down to dinner. I enjoyed taking those pictures, but did not wish to post too many and spoil the post. :)


    1. Ha ha Suchitra, thanks! I had never heard of a sweet potato curry before either, so I thought it best to invent one :). It really was a success, especially with the subtle sweetness and the heat from the chilies. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend :)


  3. I just bought some paneer cheese today. I too love curry and especially on a cold day and how perfect to make a paneer curry! Brilliant and your images makes me hungry! Happy Fiesta Friday!
