The best dishes are the ones that require effort and attention- curry is definitely one of those dishes. While this coconut curry does take some time to make, the best part is that it only uses one pot (minimal dishes, yay!)

While each ingredient is great on its own, they all come together in this dish to create the most amazing blend of soul-warming flavors. Keep in mind, the measurements for the spices used in this recipe are based on personal preference. Please feel free to change the amounts to your liking (e.g., add more cayenne or chili powder if you would like it to be spicier.) This recipe will yield about 4-6 servings.
- 4 potatoes (peeled + cubed)
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 1 yellow onion (diced)
- 5 cloves of garlic (minced)
- 1 1/2 tbsp red curry paste
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cayenne
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 cup diced tomatoes
- 1 cup cooked chickpeas
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup peas
- In a large pot, add the potatoes and vegetable broth and bring to a boil for 10-15 minutes. When the potatoes are just about tender, strain the potatoes and save 1 cup of the veggie broth. Set the potatoes and broth to the side.
- Drizzle the same pot with some olive oil and bring to medium heat. Once hot, add in the diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté for about 5 minutes. Then, mix in the red curry paste and the rest of the spices.
- Bring the heat down to low-medium and stir in the diced tomatoes (make sure to taste as you go.) Let this simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes or until some of the water has evaporated.
- Gently mix in the chickpeas, potatoes, and leftover veggie broth. Let this simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through.
- Stir in the coconut milk and peas. Cover the pot and continue to simmer on low-medium heat for 10-15 minutes. Give everything a gentle stir and you’re done!
Serve this coconut curry with some white rice for the perfect meal! Also, feel free to add in any additional veggies like broccoli or cauliflower, or even substitute the potatoes for sweet potatoes!
