Begin by filling a medium saucepan with 2½ C. of water and steam the sweet potatoes using a steamer basket. Keep the lid on the saucepan and cook 5-10 minutes. While the sweet potatoes are slightly firm, remove the steamer basket for just a minute, and pour the 1C. bulgur directly into the water. Set the steamer basket with the sweet potatoes back over the cooking bulgur. Cook for another 5-10 minutes until the bulgur has absorbed the water. Turn the heat off. Combine the tomatoes and drained chickpeas in a large pot or sauté pan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in sweet potatoes, bulgur, cilantro, scallions, curry powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper to taste until well combined. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until flavors have blended, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.
