EASY Chickpea Curry…

on May 22, 2012

I typically make this one with a mixture of seven different spices (I guess you would call that ‘from scratch’), but this week we aren’t at home and using a pre-made paste seemed a little easier and just about as tasty as ‘my’ spicy concoction… 🙂

In a pan, saute one diced onion and four grated cloves of garlic in about a teaspoon of coconut oil … let these sizzle for about five minutes on medium heat and add one finely diced yam (the orange one) and the juice of one lemon.

Then … add in about two cups of cooked chickpeas (we use dried peas but canned will work great too!), two fresh diced tomatoes,  two big tablespoons of tomato paste, one big tablespoon of ‘Patak’s’ madras curry paste and one cup of water.

Let all of this simmer for about fifteen minutes and just before it’s time to enjoy, throw in a handful of chopped cilantro … serve over brown rice, quinoa or spinach!

And … dinner is done!  🙂


PS – another version of this dish will be posted soon!  🙂
