Tips

* heat up/pan roast your coriander first to create a more indepth flavor, if its whole coriander grind in coffee grinder, spice mill, or beat it in a ziploc bag with a small skillet! If its ground coriander keep tossing it about till it smells like its cooking, looks like its smoking, & starts to get darker * If you just want to concentrate on making the sauce without worrying about how mushy the potatoes are going to cook or fall apart, then bake the sweet potatoes whole a day or two before *(350 degrees for about 40 to 60 minutes, depends how big you bought them, poke them with a knife to check…pull them out as soon as they are real close), let them chill and get hard in the refrigerator then peel and cube and pour hot sauce over it and toss gently…this will help cool the dish down to room temp quicker too!
