Have you got 15 minutes to spare? Then you have to give a go to my clean eating chickpea curry! This delicious Indian, vegan, one-pot is bursting with tasty flavours and hot spices.
I love a bit of Indian, who doesn’t? Except, my stomach doesn’t. Each time I eat Indian in a restaurant I get an upset or very bloated tummy regardless of how lovely, posh, renowned the restaurant is. I think it must be the oils they use, it just doesn’t sit well with me. This is the reason why I always make my own curry, it tastes just like at the restaurant anyway and lets me control the ingredients.
Clean eating chickpea curry recipe
Today’s clean eating chickpea curry is made only with wholesome ingredients including of course chickpea, tomatoes, spinach, spices and Provamel Soya Coconut yogurt with zero added sugar. It adds creaminess, makes the curry thicker, light and refreshing. If you find this curry is not thick enough you can always add another table spoon or two of the yogurt and stir it in or a bit of coconut flour.
Just a quick note about the onion. I have used onion slices, but if you don’t like big chunks, feel free to dice it, it won’t affect the flavour
- 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1 tin chopped tomatoes
- 200g baby spinach leaves
- 3 - 4 tbsp Provamel Soya Coconut Yogurt with zero added sugar
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 onion, diced into long slices
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp turmeric

- Start by frying the onion until softened.
- Stir in the garlic and fry for another 2-3 minutes until the onion is brown.
- Next add the turmeric, garam masala and cumin and fry for another couple of minutes
- Add in the chopped tomatoes and then simmer for 5 mins.
- Next goes in the chickpeas along with a cup of water and simmer for 10 mins.

As for the side dish I made it with basmati turmeric rice, recipe in here, but it goes beautifully with cauliflower rice too! Actually my son prefers it with cauli rice , which I am very pleased about 🙂 #littlewins
