This curry is full of fresh Paleo proof ingredients and full of flavour.

Who said you need to serve Thai curries with rice? Sweet potatoes are a great rice replacement in this recipe. Sweet potatoes will make your body feel satisfied and will provide your body with twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A.

The combination of the large variety of vegetables, chicken, coconut milk, herbs and spices will give your body an abundance of micro and macro nutrients.

We like to add coriander to this recipe, not just for its delicious flavour but also because coriander has shown to control blood sugar levels.

This recipe will take about 30 minutes to prepare and makes curry for four.
