Tandoori Mushroom Balls with Curried Sweet Potato Salad recipe from Dr. Gourmet

Place 2 quarts water in a large saucepan over high heat.

When the water begins to boil, add the diced sweet potato and reduce the heat to medium.

Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes until the sweet potato is only slightly soft.

Drain the hot water and add the cooked sweet potato to the ice water.

After about 10 minutes, drain the ice water and place the sweet potato in a small mixing bowl.

Add the celery, green onion, lime juice, olive oil, curry powder, coriander, garam masala, and salt.

Fold together gently and chill well.
