Love, love, love the taste of curry! Easy recipe with a nice blend of spices! Different way to use chickpeas! Found this recipe in a Jean Paré cookbook and adapted it a bit.

- 1⁄2 green pepper, chopped
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- 1 1⁄2 cups beef broth
- 1 1⁄4 cups tomato juice
- 1 (14 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1 1⁄2 cups diced tomatoes
- 1 1⁄4 cups frozen peas, thawed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon chili paste
- 1⁄2 cup light plain yogurt

- Heat cooking oil in large frying pan on medium. Add ground beef, green pepper and onion. Scramble fry for about 10 minutes until beef is no longer pink. Drain.
- Add garlic. Heat and stir for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant.

- Add yogurt. Stir well. Remove to large serving bowl.
- Garnish with fresh parsley.
This recipe was easy to make, tasted great (better the next day). I did add a bay leaf, cinnamon stick, 4 whole cloves and some raisins. Great meal for company, served with Greek yoghurt, chutney and rice. Great for freezing for another meal too! Thanks for posting...
Hubby absolutely loves this recipe! I added 3/4 tsp. of the Red Curry Paste. I didn't have a green pepper so I used the red pepper that I had. I use Extra Lean ground hamburger so nothing to drain saving me time.<br/>Easy to put together for a dish that tastes great. I love the smell it adds to the home too.
Delicious. Made this just as the recipe calls for and it was perfect. This is a great, one skillet meal that will be a regular in our household.
