METHOD

  1. we always start with clean hands, hair tied back and say “bismillair (in the name of God)
  2. in a medium size  pot on medium heat add measured 10 ml oil
  3. add washed peeled and diced onion
  4. peel and chop garlic and set aside while you wash peel and chop sweet potato and carrots, then add garlic and veggies to  onions which have started to caramelize, stir and stir occasionally like every few minutes.
  5.  add crush limes leaves, stir
  6. add sea salt and spices, stir
  7. add boiled water enough to cover veggie mix completely
  8. Bring to boil then turn down heat and cover for 20 minutes keeping  an eye on it.
  9. Turn off and let cool before blending. We use a hand held blender for this or jug blender. If you don’t have blender use potato masher and do you best to blend veggies into liquid
  10. add 1/2 regular can of coconut milk, you could use block coconut cream.
  11. warm up on low heat stirring occasionally
  12.  serve with sprinkled herbs, we use parsley and a little apple cidar vinegar, bon appetit!
