Chickpea curry


Have you got a vegan mate who comes around and you have no idea what to cook for them?


Or maybe you are just looking to add some healthy recipes or a meat-free Monday.


This chickpea curry is 100% vegan and tastes Oh so yummy.


It is the perfect meal for a weeknight in on the couch with a bottle of Raidis Riesling.



What you’ll need:


½ cup basmati rice

1 cup of water

2 pinch salt

2 medium onion

2 tbsp olive oil

3 clove garlic

½ lime

1-2 tsp curry paste (your favourite or a Tikka Masala curry paste would work great as well)

1 can coconut milk

1 can chickpeas

1-2 tbsp soy sauce (try one tbsp first, add another if required)

2-3 medium tomato (or handful cherry tomatoes, chopped

1 cup basil, fresh

1 tsp maple syrup (sugar is fine too)




Add the rice, water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. 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.


While this is happening chop the onions, garlic, basil and juice the lime.



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.


Add 1 tsp 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 tsp.


Throw in the drained and rinsed 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.


Add the chopped tomatoes, chopped basil, lime juice, soy sauce 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.


The rice should be done by now too - fork it through to make it fluffy.


Serve the curry and rice together with pappadums and naan bread as optional sides.
