Butter Chickpea Curry

A rich tomato and cream curry forms the flavourful base for this plant-powered twist on Indian-takeout. Notes of garam masala, ginger and chili ignite the creamy pops of chickpeas with unmistakable flavour, with garlic-toasted naan to scoop up the steamy goodness.


  • 1 can Chickpeas
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 500 ml Strained Tomatoes
  • 1 Naan
  • 4 g Fresh Chives
  • 2 oz Cream (substitute coconut milk)
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 oz Butter
  • New Delhi Spice Mix


  • Prepare Ingredients: wash and dry all produce, small dice onion, dice pepper, chop garlic, slice chives
  • Cook the Aromatics: in large pan heat 1/2 butter over medium heat until melted, add onion and pepper, cook for 5 minutes, season with salt, add spice mix and 1/2 of garlic, cook for 1-2 more minutes, until softened and aromatic
  • Cook the Butter Chickpea Curry: drain and rinse chickpeas, add the tomatoes and chickpeas to pan, bring to boil over medium high heat, once boiling reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, remove from heat and stir in cream and remaining butter, season with salt and pepper
  • Toast the Naan: in medium pan heat 1 tsp oil, add the naan and press down slightly, toast for 2-4 minutes per side, until golden and crisp, remove from pan, in the same pan add 2 tsp oil and remaining garlic, cook for 1-2 minutes, spread garlic oil on naan and slice into wedges
  • Serve: serve the butter chickpea curry with the roasted garlic naan, sprinkle with chives and enjoy

Note: I substituted coconut cream for the regular cream and Earth Balance butter for the regular butter.
