Coconut Curry Chickpea

chick pea curry


Coconut curry chickpeas is a simple and delicious combination of chickpeas, coconut milk, onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, curry, and other traditional spices. When the dish comes together, it is wonderfully aromatic and delicious. It makes a great midweek meal due to being simple and quick. I is also vegan and healthy as it has not meat.

In this recipe, we use tomatoes, they are not really traditional nor necessary in the dish, but they add extra taste and texture. You can use any type of tomato you wish, as long as they are ripe.

The chickpeas can be found in just about any grocery store, and any brand will do. Just make sure you drain them before cooking or the recipe will be too watery.

As far as the spices go, I find the given amounts create a nice balance, but you can use as much or as little as you like. The same applies to the garlic, onion, and ginger.

The dish is great served up over hot rice. Basmati rice is the best but any type can be used.
