  2. Peel sweet potato and cut into about 2 cm cubes and drain the chickpeas.
  3. Heat up a large pot over medium heat and add the coconut oil.
  4. Once the pot is hot, add chopped onion and garlic. Sauté until onion is glassy and add the ginger, cumin, turmeric and curry paste. Mix well till evenly coated.
  5. Add the sweet potato and cook it for 1-2 minutes until it is a little browned.
  6. Now add the coconut milk and the tomatoes. Mix everything and cover the pan. Let everything cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Make sure all sweet potato cubes are well submerged in liquid so they cook fast.
