Sweet Potato & Tofu Curry

Happy Friday folks! Hope you’ve had a great start to your day and here is something that will make your day a delicious one too! There is a traditional dish made in Southern India using bottle gourd and is a favorite dish in many households and I have been inspired by that dish to make this sweet potato and tofu curry.

Their cuisines bring a perfect mix of sweet, sour, spice and everything nice. The flavors dance on your palette and give you a great sense of enjoyment.
