Healthy and Quick 30 Minute Chickpea Curry Recipe

April 18, 2018
Hello friends! Today I am writing down the recipe that I made for my husband and I last week. When recipes turn out well I like to share them with you. When they don't turn out well, we still eat them, but I don't share them! Well you might know that I have always been a fan of one pot wonders, for a variety of reasons. First reason is the cleanup is so easy. You see I love to cook, but I don't love to cleanup!

Call me lazy, call me crazy, or just keep it simple and say the Lady cooked the meal, now give her a break!

I have been really wanting to make Chickpea curry and I have even been reading a lot of recipes on how to make this healthy vegan dish. However I was feeling a little intimated about the sauce as I have never cooked an authentic Indian meal. So I decided to tip-toe into this recipe and cheat just a little by using a store purchased sauce. This recipe all begins with a can of rinsed chickpeas and this wonderful Tikka Masala simmer sauce.

From this point forward I added some of our favorite vegetables.

I can hardly wait until our garden is filled with tomatoes, peppers and squash, but for now they come from the market.

Did you know chickpeas are a great source of protein. If totally vegetarian isn't your cup-of-tea add some chicken to this dish, I know it'll be delicious.

Looking for an Italian one pot wonder? Well you might enjoy Turkey Meatballs in Homestyle Ragu. Or if you like Kalamata Olives and Yellow Squash how about Easy Summer Squash with Pasta...

Thank you for joining me in my cooking adventures. Up next this week...a craft.

As always thank you!

  1. Looks yummy Jemma. I love chickpeas but my man doesn't. I am all about making things easy when I can girlfriend. I enjoy cooking too Jemma. I always have. But there are days that I am like....SEMI Homemade works for me! Have a great day! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. I have never been a fan of chickpeas but this looks yummy. Maybe the sauce and ingredients you added would make this taste really good. I might have to try it. I am trying to cut out carbs and get more protein in my diet. So you have convinced me to give chickpeas another chance. Happy Wednesday!

  3. My kids love chickpeas and I am always looking for recipes to make for them!! Perfect. Thanks!

  4. I love curry so this one looks like it could be a good addition to the menu. Thanks, Jemma!

  5. Curry and coconut milk...yum! I do love chick peas too. This dish will be all mine. My guys won't even look at it!

  6. Hmm, I love chickpeas but have never even tasted anything of the Indian/curry variety. We do love our spices here though so I'm sure this is delicious. I had no idea that chickpeas are loaded with protein - that's so good to know! Meatless dishes are a favorite of mine.

  7. Good morning Jemma! Chickpeas are one of my favorites for hummus (with raw cauliflower, YUM!) and to grind into a flour to make an Italian flatbread with rosemary and olive oil. This recipe looks great for a fast summer recipe, if we EVER GET a summer!

    Hugs to you dear heart.

  8. Jemma,
    You are way more adventuresome than I am with trying new recipes. I had some authentic Indian dishes when invited to dinner at the home of an Indian who worked with my husband for several years. Way too spicy and hot for me... I always said I didn't grow up in Texas and never developed that lead lining in my stomach for eating hot peppers and other Indian spices. My sister would probably love this recipe! She likes Indian food.
