Vegetarian chickpea curry

Nearly all your 5-a-day in one go with this Indian vegetarian chickpea curry. Chickpeas are good for gut health as they are high in fiber and a source of plant-based protein.

I must admit that these measures are not exact, as you can vary this dish endlessly and to your own liking. Consider for instance potatoes and sweet potatoes.

Ingredients

1 red onion
2-3 cloves garlic
2 red peppers, finely chopped
3-4 carrots, peeled and sliced
2 table spoons red curry paste
2 cans coconut milk
3 cans chick peas, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon turmeric
Chopped spring onion to garnish

Method

  • Sautee the onion until it starts to soften, add garlic
  • Add peppers, carrots and curry paste
  • Then add coconut milk and turmeric
  • Let simmer until vegetables are soft, about 15-20 minutes
  • Add chickpeas and let simmer for another few minutes until chick peas are warm and soft too

Serve with rice, spring onion to garnish and enjoy!
