Vegan Chickpea Curry

Vegan Chickpea Curry. Our awesome vegan takes on the insanely popular dish. Ridiculously tasty and nutritious – just look at all that protein, fiber and iron…

Ingredients   [ For 7 to 8 people ]    [  Preparation time : 22 minute  –  Cooking time : 35 minutes  ]

  • ½ cup basmati rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ½ lime
  • 1-2 tbsp of your favorite curry paste. (a Tikka Masala curry paste would work great as well)
  • 1 can coconut milk (1 can = 1.5 cups )
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (1 can = ca. 400g with liquid)
  • 1-2 tbsp soy sauce (try one tbsp first, add another if required)
  • 2-3 medium tomatoes/ handful cherry tomatoes, chopped. The sweeter the better 
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (sugar is fine too)

Preparation Method

  1. Add the rice, water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil (could also be done the Indian way from our Buddha Bowls). Keep an eye on the rice – when the water is boiling put a lid on it, reduce the heat to low and cook for another 8-10 mins.
  2. While this is happening chop the onions, garlic, basil, and juice the lime.
  3. Put the oil and onions into a large pan and cook on a low-medium heat until the onions start to soften and turn clear about 5 minutes. Add the garlic for a further 1 minute.
  4. Add 1 tbsp curry paste and the milk, stirring until the curry is dissolved. Add another pinch of salt. Taste test – if you’d like your curry a little stronger then add another tbsp.
  5. Throw in the chickpeas (and chopped green veg if you’re using it) and soy sauce, and cook on a medium heat for around 5 minutes, bringing the curry to a boil. If it starts to burn, reduce heat immediately.
  6. Add the chopped tomatoes, chopped basil, lime juice and gently simmer the curry for another 2 minutes. Taste test again, and if desired add a second tbsp soy sauce and the syrup or brown sugar. Give it another stir.
  7. The rice should be done by now too – fork it through to make it fluffy.
  8. Serve the curry and rice together with papadoms and naan bread as optional sides.

Enjoy it!!
