Vegan Chickpea Curry with Mango

Chickpea curry is among my favorite meals. Once you have the curry paste ready, the preparation is a question of a couple of minutes, you can make a big batch with a gazillion variations. This time, I made beautiful chickpea curry with mango.

Why Do I Love (This) Curry

The best recipes are made to repeat, which is definitely a true story about me and curry. It’s quick, easy and you can make a huge batch. You can even freeze it and have it ready for those days, when someone is sick, when there is not enough time, you have a hangover or you’re just too lazy to cook. You know those days. My favorite is red lentil or chickpea curry. Chickpea adds a perfect texture, and if you have it pre-cooked, the meal is ready in no time. And there is always the saver – a can of chickpea.

How to make Vegan Chickpea Curry with Mango

Let’s do this!

In a deep pot, preheat the olive oil, and add diced onion. Let the onion soften, and add grated garlic and ginger. Sauté for 1 minute.

Add the curry paste, and all spices, and stir to combine.

Add the chopped mango, sliced bell peppers, tomatoes, and coconut milk, and stir again.

Bring the sauce to boil with a lid on and leave it for 30 minutes on medium.

Taste the curry and season with salt, pepper, or some extra spices. Squeeze a lime over the curry and stir to combine.

You can serve it with any side dish you like. I usually opt for rice or even better – fresh naan. And a lot of cilantro.

Enjoy!
