Creamy Chickpea Curry

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Calamity-Kate

This creamy chickpea curry is heavily adapted from a recipe I originally found in a cookbook. I found the original a little bland, so I added some extra ingredients and modified the cooking instructions to make it really "pop".

This recipe is pretty good. One thing missing: Salt. I used light coconut milk instead of the full fat (that's what I had on hand) and added extra raisins (they really make this recipe). I also cut the recipe in half and got 4-5 servings out of it. I'll be making this again soon, but I may try switching up the spices. Thanks for sharing!
