This protein-packed tuna chickpea curry is delicious, flavourful, and full of spice. If you are looking for your next quick curry night, then add this to your Indian cookbook.

Soft chickpeas and tuna chunks covered in a spicy tomato masala served with homemade chapatti make the perfect midweek meal. This chickpea and fish curry recipe is so filling and healthy. You will be making this tasty meal again and again.

For a quick curry recipe using canned chickpea and canned tuna serve this dinner in under an hour. No need for hours in the kitchen with this chickpea tuna curry recipe.

Tuna is something almost everyone has lying in the cupboards. I know I always do. This is an incredibly simple curry that doesn’t take much time to make at all. If you’re short on time, but really craving a curry then this is the recipe for you.

If you’re not a fan of chickpea then check out one of my reader’s favourite recipes; chana masala. Alternatively, if you don’t like chickpeas then stick with my tuna curry recipe, I have another fish curry where I use cod fish curry that’s perfect if you’re not a fan of tuna. I can guarantee you that these recipes are delicious, and I know you will love all of them, so be sure to give them each a go!

Not only is this chickpea tuna curry recipe delicious, but it is also quite healthy, delicious and a perfect cheap meal for students. Tuna and chickpeas both have so many health benefits.

Tuna is nutritious and an excellent source of protein. The best thing about canned tuna is that they last for absolute ages, so you can stock up your pantry and use it whenever you feel like it.

Chickpeas also have an array of benefits such as helping to lower cholesterol and improving digestion. They are also great for weight loss as they are so filling, not to mention packed with protein.

In this recipe, I use canned chickpeas, but you could just as easily use fresh chickpeas which I sometimes do. If you are short on time and want to make this curry in a hurry then stick to canned chickpeas.

If you are using fresh chickpeas, they 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.
