Potato & Chickpea Curry With Rice (Dutch Oven)

For the full Indian curry experience, serve this dish with warmed naan ( we use Best Healthy Vegan Indian Naan (Or Garlic Naan) Bread!), sliced green onion, and a bowl of spicy chutney. Be sure the lid to the Dutch oven closes tightly over the spinach so no steam escapes while the dish is cooking. Found in Vegetarian Times.

I'm going to try this with uncooked rice, I'm not sure if it's supposed to be cooked or raw.

Well, I followed the recipe to a "T" and it came out dry and the potatoes were undercooked. I was hoping it would be saucier. I ended up adding another cup of broth and stuck it back in the oven for an additional 30 minutes. The flavors were good, I just needed to tweak it to create the type of curry I wanted.

Quick, easy and yummy! I think I will put some red pepper flakes or a bit of cayenne next time just for personal preference...we like it spicy!
