Sweetpotato and Vegetable Curry

I just love making curry! For this Recipe ReDux sponsored contest, I decided to make a sweetpotato and vegetable curry. I really wanted to incorporate the California sweetpotatoes into a delicious dish that went well with the curry taste. This vegetable curry includes carrots, celery and onions along with the California sweetpotatoes, making a fabulous combo! Disclosure: I received free samples of California sweetpotatoes mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am  entering a recipe contest sponsored by the California Sweetpotato Council and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.
