Chickpea Curry
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Serves: 4
This Indian-inspired curry is full of flavour and on the table in 20 minutes


  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 1 tbs ground coriander
  • 1 tbs curry powder
  • 1 x 400g can no-added-salt chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 zucchini, chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen green bean
  • 400 g can no-added-salt diced tomatoes
  • 165 g can reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 4 cups steamed rice (from 2 cups uncooked rice)


  1. Heat oil in a non-stick frypan or pot and fry onions, garlic and spices for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer with the lid off for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Serve with rice.

Variation: You can use a variety of vegetables in this curry. Potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and capsicum all work well.
Comment: If you like a mild curry, or your spices are very fresh (and therefore strong), start with half the amount of curry powder, cumin and coriander.

Healthy tip!

On a budget? If fresh produce is not available or is too expensive, try canned or frozen fruit and veg!

    This is just delicious.. I used cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and fresh beans and increased the amount of curry and spices to make it a bit zingier... a new family favourite
