Dairyfree Curry with Chickpeas

Dairyfree Curry with Chickpeas

Pff hot summer days. For the last two days I was more than happy to live on salads and raw vegetables. As long as the food was cold, I was fine.  The idea of switching on the oven or cooking felt a bit like a torture. But today, I felt ready for a decent meal, cooked vegetables and warm proteins. A nutritious, warm, not too ‘heavy’ meal  –  vegetable curry with chickpeas.

Needed appliances

Preparation steps

  1. Start boiling water and cut vegetables


  1. Place rice in a pot and cover it with boiled water. Boil rice till ready (the cooking time depends on rice, I always try it from time to time until I like its texture)and drain it.
  2. Warm up the pan with a little bit of fat and fry first: leek and carrots. When they become soft, add zucchini and chickpeas.
  3. When all vegetables are soft-ish, add coconut milk and (curry) spices. Let it simmer for 5 minutes.
