Directions for: Chickpea Curry with Rice


2 cups basmati rice

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 large onion, chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tsp curry powder

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 cup vegetable stock

2 (15-oz) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

13 ½ ounce can coconut milk

2 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp sriracha sauce

Naan bread, for serving

Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish


1. Cook the basmati rice according to the package instructions.

2. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper and cook until the onions are dark brown and caramelized, about 10 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Pour in the vegetable stock and stir to scrape up all the brown bits in the pan. Add the chickpeas, coconut milk, honey and a squirt of sriracha. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

3. Warm the naan in the microwave. Serve the curry over the rice with the warmed naan. Garnish with the cilantro.
