This one pot sweet potato and chickpea curry is a really easy curry. It’s ideal for a weeknight meals because it only takes an hour to make and serve.
Lady Lynne and I particularly love this chickpea curry recipe. When we’re approaching the end of the month and finances are tighter, it doesn’t cost the earth to make.
It’s rich, tasty and comforting. Like a decadent curry from a restaurant at a fraction of the cost!
You’ll find this a mild curry, but one you could add more of the curry powder to if you wanted it a little spicier!
I’ve made no secret that curries are a staple of our diet and this is one of our favorite varieties.
This sweet potato and chickpea curry is healthy and protein packed. It’s easy on the dishes because it’s made in one pot on the stove.
Curry is a wonderful Indian dish. You might eat many curries cooked at an Indian restaurant. Really though there’s no excuse for not making one at home.
Homemade curries can be fun to make and as stated before taste as good as a restaurant curry. Plus making a curry at home means your house smells amazing too!
Homemade curries can be much healthier too. This one uses less oil than a traditional Indian curry and vegetables instead of meat.
As long as you’re not adding more salt than this recipe recommends, eating sweet potatoes can help to prevent high blood pressure. A condition of which taking too much salt in your diet is linked to.
How To Prepare This Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry
- Finely dice your onion so that it easily breaks down and helps to form the base of the rich sauce.
- Ginger and garlic paste can be shop bought or made by combining 1.5 tsp fresh grated ginger with 1.5 tsp crushed garlic.
- Using tomato passata makes a much thicker sauce than chopped tomatoes but if you can’t get that then a tin of chopped tomatoes would work.
- Make sure the sauce has thickened and potatoes are cooked to your preferred level of softness before you add the chickpeas.
- Serve with plain basmati rice. The recipe is so flavoursome itself you don’t want to use flavoured rice.
