Chickpea Curry (Vegan -Pressure Cooker)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by **Jubes**

A few minor changes to suit taste, based on a recipe by Suzanne Gibbs in her book "the Pressure Cooker". A super easy vegan cury that's great served with pappadums and rice or naan breads (if you can have wheat). Gluten-free and vegan. A mild recipe....add extra spices in if you like a warmer curry. Kids and meat-lovers will enjoy this one. The original recipe calls for 2 potatoes. This recipe uses cooked chickpeas as the addition of salt and acidic tomatoes inhibits the cooking of beans

I used 3 large potatoes but wished I used 2. Also will add more tomatoes next time. We added coconut milk to make it creamier and it was delicious

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in the pressure cooker over high heat. Cook the cumin seeds for approx 30 seconds or until they start to crackle.
  2. Add the sliced onion and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. The onion should be golden and soft.
  3. Reduce the heat and stir in the garlic and other spices.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients (except garnish).
  5. Close and lock the lid. Bring to high pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to stabilise the pressure and cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Release pressure and serve with a sprig of coriander or a sprinkle of parsley. Serve with steamed basmati rice, naan or pappadums.
  7. NOTE: to cook dried beans. Overnight soak, drain water, place into pressure cooker, cover with fresh water and cook on low pressure for 10 minutes. I soaked 2 cups dried chickpeas and result was a little over 4 cups cooked beans. Canned/tinned chickpeas can be used if desired- be sure to drain and wash them well.
