  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 190C/ 170 fan/ gas mark 5 and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Toss the sweet potato with 1 tbsp oil and spread out on the tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly caramelised and tender.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, add the remaining oil to a medium saucepan and warm over a low-medium heat. Fry the onions, garlic and ginger for 8-10 minutes, or until very soft. Stir in the paprika, turmeric, curry powder, chilli powder, coriander, garam masala and crushed cardamom pods to make a thick paste. Cook for 1-2 minutes, adding a little extra oil if it seems dry.

  • Step 3

    Add the canned tomatoes and tomato purée and cook for 2-3 minutes until it becomes a paste again. Add the green pepper, green chilli, vegetable stock, fresh tomatoes and salt. Bring to a simmer then reduce the heat to low and cook gently for 35-45 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Add the chickpeas and sweet potato to the curry and warm through.

  • Step 4

    To make the garam masala raita, mix all the ingredients together and season. Serve with the curry and rice.
