Ingredients for the creamy chickpea coconut curry

  • Chickpeas.

    500g cooked chickpeas. You can prepare the chickpeas the night before or use canned chickpeas.
  • Spinach.

    Fresh washed spinach for the color and to get some iron, magnesium, and calcium, to name a few.
  • Onion.

    I love to use red onion for this recipe, but yellow onion works well too.
  • Bell pepper.

    Just ¼ to give the dish some flavor.
  • Parsley.

    Fresh chopped parsley will add some flavor to this wonderful dish. Parsley is a good source of vitamin A and folate.
  • Cilantro.

    One of the most important ingredients when it comes to adding flavor. Cilantro has many health benefits. It may help lower your blood sugar, has immune boosting antioxidants and may help lower cholesterol as well.
  • Garlic.

    One fresh garlic clove but if you don’t have fresh garlic at home use half teaspoon instead. I would prefer fresh garlic as it can help reduce blood pressure and is a source for vitamin B6, manganese and fiber.
  • Tomato paste.

    I recommend using organic tomato paste.
  • Tomatoes.

    You can use 500 g fresh or canned tomatoes.
  • Coconut cream.

    It's high in saturated fats and a good source of fiber.
  • Lime.

    We need something sour to bring the dish to the next level. Nothing better than fresh lime juice. It can promote healthy skin and help to prevent kidney stones.
  • Spices.

  • Turmeric.

  • Paprika.

  • Pepper.

  • Brown sugar.

  • Salt.

  • Chili flakes.

  • Caraway seeds.

any tips?

  • This dish is very simple to cook but very complex in taste. If you are cooking for different people, where some don’t eat spicy food, just sprinkle the chili flakes before serving on the plates. Therefore, you can prevent complaints.
  • For an extra kick sprinkle some lemon juice before eating it, it’s perfect.
  • To keep it on the healthiest level I would always use fresh ingredients.
