Easy Vegan Chickpea Cùrry Recipe


  • ½ cùp basmati rice
  • 1 cùp water
  • 2 pinch salt
  • 2 mediùm onion
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 clove garlic
  • ½ lime
  • 1-2 tsp cùrry paste (yoùr favoùrite or a Tikka Masala cùrry paste woùld work great as well)
  • 1 can coconùt milk (1 can = 1.5 cùps)
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1-2 tbsp soy saùce (try one tbsp first, add another if reqùired)
  • 2-3 mediùm tomato (or handfùl cherry tomatoes, chopped. The sweeter the better ;))
  • 1 cùp basil, fresh
  • 1 tsp maple syrùp (sùgar is fine too)

  • ½ cùp sùgar snap peas (any green veg yoù like)


Add the rice, water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil (coùld also be done the Indian way from oùr Bùddha Bowls). Keep an eye on the rice - when the water is boiling pùt a lid on it, redùce the heat to low and cook for another 8-10 mins (or as per packet instrùctions).

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

Pùt the oil and onions into a large pan and cook on a low-mediùm heat ùntil the onions start to soften and tùrn clear, aboùt 5 minùtes. Add the garlic for a fùrther 1 minùte.

Add 1 tsp cùrry paste and the milk, stirring ùntil the cùrry is dissolved. Add another pinch of salt. 

Taste test - if yoù’d like yoùr cùrry a little stronger then add another tsp.

Throw in the drained and rinsed chickpeas (and chopped green veg if yoù’re ùsing it) and soy saùce, and cook on a mediùm heat for aroùnd 5 minùtes, bringing the cùrry to a boil. If it starts to bùrn, redùce heat immediately.

Add the chopped tomatoes, chopped basil, lime jùice, soy saùce and gently simmer the cùrry for another 2 minùtes. Taste test again, and if desired add a second tbsp soy saùce and the syrùp or brown sùgar. Give it another stir.

The rice shoùld be done by now too - fork it throùgh to make it flùffy.

Serve the cùrry and rice together with papadoms and naan bread as optional sides.
