Indian food is one of my favorite types of cuisine. I love the spices, the flavors and, of course, the fact that it’s super vegetarian-friendly.
However, Indian food can be hard to make at home. If you don’t have access to an extensive collection of spices, replicating that characteristic Indian taste can be close to impossible. In fact, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried whipping up my favorite Indian dishes at home only to be left disappointed by the lackluster flavor.
Today I’m sharing a recipe with you that’s easy to make, delicious and virtually foolproof–ideal for people like me who love Indian food but are novices when it comes to preparing it at home.
As you may notice, this chickpea curry has a unique twist. It’s paired with veggie rice, perfect for squeezing in a few extra servings of greens plus adding in a fresh and yummy flavor.
For my veggie rice, I used a mix of kale and spinach plus cilantro, but you can use other greens if you have them on hand.
This curry is thick, creamy and bursting with flavor. Don’t be afraid to taste it as you go and add a little extra seasoning if needed. It’s meant to provide a burst of flavor in every bite, so no need to be light-handed with the spices.
Additionally, make sure you have some delicious naan or pita bread ready to serve with this yummy meal. The curry is perfect for dipping and you’ll definitely want something to mop up every last drop from your plate when you’re done.
Pair this satisfying chickpea curry with a sweet mango lassi and some samosas and you’re all set!
