1. Peel the potatoes, sweet potatoes and celery and cut into thin, even slices using a sharp knife and place the vegetables in a bowl of cold water to prevent them from discolouring.
2. Preheat the oven to 180C. Heat half the butter in a heavy pan, add the curry powder, ground turmeric and coriander and half the chilli powder. Cook for 2 minutes, then leave to cool slightly. Drain the vegetables, then pat them dry with kitchen paper. Place in a bowl, add the spice mixture and the shallots and mix well.
3. Arrange the vegetables in a shallow baking dish, seasoning well with salt and pepper between the layers. Mix the cream and milk together; pour the mixture over the vegetables, then sprinkle the remaining chilli powder on top.
4. Cover the dish and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the lid, dot the vegetables with the remaining butter and bake for a further 50 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
5. Serve the gratin garnished with chopped parsley.
