Jamaican style curry chickpeas inspired by Jamaican curry and Indian curry chana masala. A fusion of two culture to make the delicious dish.
I love chickpea so much could eat it every day. I’ve cooked this dish so many times I think the mastered it to perfection.
This recipe is gluten-free and very vegan friendly.
You have been waiting for it, haven’t you? Here are my ingredients.
- Chickpeas: I used canned chickpeas for this recipe.
- Coconut milk: I used freshly squeezed coconut milk. I have used canned coconut milk before but it doesn’t compare.
- Tomato: I always blend the tomatoes so there are not tomato bits in my curry.
- Carrot and potato: Both ingredients from Jamaican curry. They both go well in the curry so I had it to my curry chickpeas.
- Essential spices and seasoning
How To Cook Jamaican Curry Chickpeas
Because I am using canned chickpeas, which is already cooked, I cooked the potato halfway through before adding the chickpeas. The carrot is easier to cook so that goes in with the chickpeas.
What To Serve It With
I only ever have the dish with my coconut rice dish or naan bread, nothing else seems to go with it.
However, you have it with your favourite side that you love having with curry go ahead and try it.
