Regardless of what you choose to call this classic vegetarian (and vegan!) curry, you will definitely love my recipe for it. This chickpea curry is a wonderful comfort food and one of my favourite curries out there. It’s a hearty and saucy chickpea dish with a dash of warming spices. What isn’t to love?
Traditionally chole bhature (yet another name for this famous curry) is served as a breakfast item alongside puri. This is something that is very common in India and Pakistan and there were many occasions when I ended up having this curry for my morning meal. Not so much in the UK though! I like to enjoy this with my family as a nice lunch or dinner meal with a side of chapatti.
In this recipe, I use fresh chickpeas, but you could just as easily use canned chickpeas if you are short on time and want to make this curry in a hurry (that rhyme was completely unintentional, so I am rather proud of it).
Back to the recipe now. Chickpeas do need to be soaked overnight as this helps to soften them and makes them more digestible. I would recommend the chickpeas be left to soak overnight.
This chickpea curry genuinely is something that is perfect for everyone regardless of dietary needs. It’s vegetarian. It’s vegan. It’s gluten-free. Best of all, it’s packed FULL of protein making this a wonderful substitute for those who don’t eat meat.
The spices in this curry aren’t too overpowering but provide just a little kick to get those taste buds buzzing. Even meat-lovers will love this curry.
