This dish goes together very quickly. You will have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. If you don't have cooked rice, start it before you make the curry and they should be finished at the same time.

This was so easy and my go to now for Chickpea Curry. I added some frozen mixed veg to soak up some of the sauce and it came out nice and thick...delicious.

This is an easy delicious quick meal to make. I like using lite coconut milk which helps to reduce the calories. Additionally, after adding the chickpeas and coconut milk I also add 1 diced potato and 1/2 cup of frozen edamame. And during the final 5 minute simmer I like adding some fresh baby spinach ( about 2 cups ) along with the tomatoes, lime juice, and sugar.

My absolute favorite new recipe. I've made this about a half dozen times now, it's the best curry recipe I've ever made! I make it with brown rice and it can be frozen so I have something healthy and tasty around even when I'm too busy to cook (especially good around exam time!). It's flexible too- I add carrot, edamame beans and spinach or whatever else I have around. Thank you!!
