In large, heavy pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, ginger, garlic, scallions, red peppers, 1/2 teaspoon salt and curry powder. Stir, cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chickpeas (with liquid) and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.

Add vinegar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir in sweet potatoes. Over low heat, gently stir mixture about 2 minutes to allow sweet potatoes to release some of their starch. Be careful not to break them up completely. Add cilantro and stir to blend. Serve hot.
