Tofu, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry

This is an ever-evolving recipe that is very forgiving and easy to throw together. It seems especially tasty on cool rainy days. And it can be as spicy as you want: the red chili is optional but adds a nice kick if you like that sort of thing. If not, leave it out!
