This flavorful Chickpea Curry is a staple in our kitchen. It’s so quick and easy to make. A perfect dish for Meatless Monday!
We both love all sorts of curry, especially on a cold day, it’s nice to eat something spicy. Everything I use in this recipe I already had in my pantry or in the freezer which is a big plus for me because sometimes you don’t want to leave the house.
This dish is so easy to make, but the flavors are great. When you don’t have garam masala at home, which is an Indian spice mix, you can use normal curry powder but I recommend buying some if you plan to make more curries.
And I think you will make more after you tasted my Chickpea Curry wit Lime Rice! Give it a try and tell me how you like it.
