This is a slightly unusual curry mellowed with sweet potato. The colors are vibrant.

1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
1 to 2  small dried chili peppers, such as pequin

1 cup sterile-pack strained tomatoes or  pureed canned tomatoes
1  medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
2  small carrots, peeled, trimmed and cut across into 1/4-inch rounds (about 1 cup)
5 ounces (about 3/4 cup) fresh shelled peas or  frozen peas, defrosted in a sieve under warm running water

Cover, reduce the heat to low and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the cauliflower and celery. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and mushrooms. Cover. Cook for 10 minutes. Add the defrosted peas, if using. Cover and cook for 5 more minutes.

Stir in the salt, pepper and lime juice.

Serve with the rice.
