From the Test Kitchen

To accompany seared pork in this vibrant dish, we’re mashing potatoes with coconut korma sauce––an Indian cuisine staple made from a blend of aromatics, coconut cream, cashew butter, and traditional spices like garam masala––for a creamy finish. For even more richness, we’re topping the pork with cooling cucumber yogurt.

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the sweet potatoes. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; medium dice the leaves. Cut the white bottoms of the scallions into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice the hollow green tops. Quarter the lime.

Add the diced sweet potatoes to the pot of boiling water and cook 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.
