Author Notes: Kurma is a creamy, mild curry from north Kerala, a Muslim version. Taught to me by my friend Shahid Sait. I asked him to make with sweet potato. His version is rich. Layered flavors and its thickened with coconut and cashew paste. pauljoseph

A stunning, wonderful dish! I love how well balanced the flavors are! Thank you for sharing. <br /><br />[Just a note, there is a typo in the recipe calling for 1 tablespoon cashew nut paste and then 1 cup cashew nut paste again! I figured out that the 1 cup measurement was for coconut milk.]
