Carrot, sweet potato and ginger curry

We love a curry but they are just not the same without the onion and garlic however with this recipe you can still appreciate other flavours typically associated with curries such as ginger, cumin and turmeric. You can amend the chilli content to suit your preference, add more or less, the tamarind sets a tart tone and the fish sauce adds a salty umami element, you can get vegetarian alternatives if you wanted to make this curry vegan.
