Sweet Potato and Chicken Curry

Freestyling again today so nothing much to say with this dish, basically like most of my freestyle dishes ingredients are made with what I randomly see in our fridge and pantry from leftovers I had from past dishes I prepared. So what we are preparing today is a chicken curry cooked in coconut milk together with two types of sweet potatoes, curry spices and a small amount of lentils to thicken it up. This dish turned out really great, slightly sweet, creamy and mildly spicy perfect with a nice naan bread or rice.
