Sweet Potato & Chickpea Curry

Being honest, my family is not big on curry so I embarked on a mission. Making it delicious, beautiful and appealing. They enjoyed the creamy coconut sauce, the tender sweet potatoes and I have to say, I was a happy camper when empty plates were displayed! Yess!! They liked this one!!
