I always like to have a few cans of chickpeas in the pantry. There are so many things that you could do with them. From Chickpea Celery Salad to Sweet Potato Lentil and Chickpea Stew, there are so many ways to use chickpeas.

This chickpea and potato curry definitely will be on the curry night rotation!
what ingredients do you need?
Aromatics- For the aromatics, the curry starts by sautéing onion, jalapeños, garlic and ginger in avocado oil.
Curry Powder- I usually just use store-bought curry powder but you can always make your own curry powder blend.
Potatoes- You can use russet or yukon gold potatoes. Either will work.
Chickpeas-It wouldn't be a chickpea curry without chickpeas!
Mango Chutney- What takes this curry to the next level is the addition of mango chutney. When the curry is almost done, the mango chutney gets added. I love the pop of flavor that the mango chutney adds to the curry. It also adds another texture element to the potato curry.
Can the curry be made ahead of time?
Yes! The curry can be made ahead of time. After you are done making the curry, let it cool and then add to an air-tight container. Store in the fridge until you are ready to eat.
reheating the chickpea curry
To reheat the curry, simply add the curry to a pot and cook until warm over medium heat.
If the curry thickens up too much, add a little water or vegetable broth to loosen up the curry.
