Classic Chickpea Curry

One of my favorite all time dishes.

This was like the first recipe I really mastered when I first went vegan. Since then I haven’t looked back.

Great recipe for beginner culinarians. Its very simple & super tasty. One that will be a go to recipe for you.

Cook Time

Prep 15 mins

Cook 20 mins


1 can of rinsed chickpeas

1 can of coconut milk

1/2 cup of diced yellow onions

1/4 tablespoons of minced garlic

2 tablespoons of curry powder

1 tablespoon of garlic powder

sprinkle of black pepper

1/2 tablespoon of sea salt

1/2 old bay seasoning


jasmine rice, fried plantains, fresh avocado


1. Sauté onions & garlic until its soft & fragrant.

2. Add curry powder to the veggies & cook for 2-3 minutes. (Curry powder has turmeric in it which is a raw spice & it needs to be cooked to release the flavors).

3. Add chickpeas & saute until slightly firm 3-4 minutes.

4. Pour in the coconut milk & let simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. This will build the sauce.

5. Check the curry & stir occasionally. Once sauce is thickened add in the remaining seasonings & turn off heat.

6. Plate up & serve with Jasmine Rice, Fried Plantains & Fresh Avocado or just eat it solo!

This is the recipe I used to make this Classic Chickpea Curry. Add this to your weekly rotation!
