Peanut-Ginger Chickpea Curry

Recipe by  

"Quick to make and very filling! This is vegan-friendly and can be also be made gluten-free. I love the combination of peanut butter and coconut milk. You can easily double this recipe to make a larger quantity. For potlucks, I spread the cooked rice in a casserole dish and layer the curry on top."

Directions

  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir coconut milk and peanut butter together in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until the peanut butter melts and the mixture is smooth, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir chickpeas, ginger, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper into the mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are tender, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes; continue cooking until the mixture thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Season with salt. Serve with the rice.

Yum! Even my picky husband liked this. I only had one can of chickpeas, so added some carrot chunks that I had lightly steamed. I also followed other reviewers' suggestions and added a teaspoon of red curry powder. Served with brown rice. Will definitely make this again.

The recipe said Curry but there was no curry paste or powder called for in the directions. So I added it. It tasted very good

I changed the recipe to what I had on hand. I used soy milk, but added coconut, and used crushed tomatoes. This was delicious! I'll be making it again. Hopefully next time, I'll be able to use diced tomatoes!

I loved this recipe. It is my very favorite vegan meal since I started eating vegan 8 weeks ago. I only had one can chickpeas, so I cubed some yellow squash and it was very good. My husband suggested potatoes, too. I did use 2 cups coconut milk and a heaping 1/3 c peanut butter and still would have liked it to be a little more saucy, but I will definitely make this many more times. Even my pickiest eater liked it.

I found it interesting that it's called a curry dish, but had no curry in it, so I added two teaspoons to this recipe. I also found it a bit bland, so I tripled the amount of cayenne pepper. The result? A curry dish that tasted legit!

This recipe was yummy! I used half the amount of tomatoes and light coconut milk. Will make again!

This is a great recipe. It's very easy and tastes great except that I'd like a bit more heat which is easy to remedy. I made this for a work pot luck and it got raves. I followed the recipe except that I toasted the spices in a bit of grapeseed oil before adding them to the coconut sauce. I also added some curry and some garam masala as others had suggested. Oh, and I used lite coconut milk. Next time I will increase the spices and also either add more cayenne pepper or a dried thai chili. I might also try using extra chunky peanut butter to add a bit of crunch to the it. I'll definitely make this again.
