Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 500g/4 large carrots, chopped
  • 400g/3 large sweet potatoes, chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded and chopped

Preparation:

1. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes until soft.  Add the garlic, chilli, ginger, carrots, sweet potatoes, kaffir leaves and stock.  Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a low heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
