Press GO to unleash the MOB step by step feature.

Step 1.

Preheat your oven to 180°C/356°F.

Step 2.

Place the sweet potatoes on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Season them with a good amount of salt, pepper and 1 tbsp of curry powder. Rub the curry powder into the sweet potatoes and whack in the oven for 1 hour.

Step 3.

Finely slice the shallots and boil them in enough vegetable oil to cover and then cook until golden and crispy. Remove these from the pan, drain the excess oil and cover with a pinch of salt.

Step 4.

In another pan heat a drizzle of olive oil and add the ginger, garlic and 2 tbsp of curry powder to create a paste. Add the chickpeas and give them a stir to coat. Next, add the coconut yoghurt, a large handful of spinach and the finely chopped coriander (saving some for garnish). Squeeze in the juice from the whole lime and season to taste. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often.

Step 5.

Once the chickpea sauce has been made, cut the baked sweet potatoes in half and generously fill them with the mixture. Sprinkle the remaining coriander and a handful of pomegranate seeds on top. Finally, add a dollop of yogurt and the crispy shallots then repeat for your MOB. Tuck into this delicious dish! Enjoy!

Make sure your shallots are nice and crispy for extra flavour and crunch.
