Vegetable Korma

I’ve been trying to include more vegetarian dishes into our diet and here’s one of them. I’ve used the same spices as the chicken korma recipe but have substituted the chicken with sweet potato.  Also, unlike the chicken version, I’ve managed to fit everything into the Thermomix bowl so there’s less cleaning up to do!
