Lactose-free sweet curry with yams/sweet potato – Recept ook in NL

This time a recipe for a sweet curry, which I regularly eat. Yams are extremely healthy and usually easy to digest for people with IBS. They are also great for vegetarians. This recipe is lactose-free and you can easily make it vegetarian (leave the chicken out). It hardly has any spiceness, that’s why it’s suitable for me. You can always add some spiceness if you’d like!


1 (rode) ui
3 tenen knoflook
3 cm verse gember
400g zoete aardappelen
1 eetlepel garam masala
300g rode paprika’s
400ml kokosmelk (light) – dit bevat geen lactose
1 courgette
300g kipfilet

  1. Snipper de ui. Pel en pers de knoflook (knoflookpers). Schil en rasp de gember. Snijd de kipfilet in stukjes (ong. 2x2cm).
  2. Halveer de courgette en snijd in dunne plakjes. Schil de zoete aardappelen en snijd ze brunoise (blokjes ong. 1x1cm). Snijd de paprika fijn. Bak de paprika kort in wat olie.
  3. Pureer met de staafmixer (of keukenmachine) de paprika, samen met de kokosmelk. Doe het daarna in een grote kookpan.
  4. Verhit olie in een pan en bak de kip, samen met de ui, knoflook, gember, garam masala en wat kerriepoeder. Voeg het daarna toe in de kookpan.
  5. Bak daarna de zoete aardappel voor ong. 3 min. met wat knoflookpoeder, kerriepoeder en zout. Voeg het daarna toe in de kookpan.
  6. Bak tenslotte de courgette en voeg het toe in de kookpan.
  7. Laat ong. 20 minuten koken. Als het erg dun is, kan je wat bloem of maizena toevoegen. Serveren met rijst.

Indien gewenst kan je altijd meer of minder kruiden toevoegen. Je kan ook meer peper toevoegen (in garam masala zit een beetje peper) of koriander etc.

3 centimetres (1.181 inches) of fresh ginger
400 gramms of sweet potato/yam
1 tablespoon of garam masala
300 gramms of red paprika
400 millilitres of coconut milk (light) – this doesn’t contain lactose
300 gramms of chicken breast/chicken fillet

garlic powder

1. Peel and cut the onion. Peel and press the garlic (with garlic press). Peel and grate the ginger. Cut the chicken breast into pieces (2×2 centimetres/0.787×0.787 inches).
2. Halve the zucchini and cut into thin slices. Peel and cut the sweet potato(es) brunoise/small dice (about 1×1 centimetres/0.39×0.39 inches). Finely cut the paprika. Fry the paprika with some (olive) oil shortly.
3. Mash the paprika with the (immersion) blender, together with the coconut milk. Pour it into a large cooking pot.
4. Fry the chicken, together with onion, garlic, ginger, garam masala and some curry powder. When it’s done, put it into the cooking pot.
5. Fry the sweet potato(es) for about 3 minutes with some garlic powder, curry powder and salt. Add it to the cooking pot.
6. Fry the zucchini and add it to the cooking pot as well.
7. Let it cook for about 20 minutes. If it remains thin, then you could add some flour. Serve with rice.

You can always add more or less herbs and spices, according to your taste. You can add some more pepper for example (garam masala has some pepper).
