Sri Lankan Aubergine Sweet Potato Stew

Sri Lankan Aubergine Sweet Potato Stew


If you’ve been following me for a while now you already know how much I love taking a simple dish and adding my own twist to it. Curries are my absolute favourite but Sri-lankan curries have a whole new dimension to them with the herbs and spices ranging from mustard but also cinnamon, flavours you wouldn’t think to combine but taste amazing.

Traditionally, this would be made with meat however i’ve given it a vegan twist and even added edamame for a whole new texture. Let me know what you think!



2 Large aubergines

200g Sweet potato (diced)

100g Frozen edamame
