Butter chickpea curry

    50 min

    Instead of butter chicken, try this vegetarian version made with chickpeas and potatoes. It's similar in flavour and easy to make. Serve on a bed of rice.

    Great and easy recipe! I doubled up on the spices, halved the salt and added 3/4 cup milk instead of 1/2 cup. I will make this again and again! I gave 4 stars only because i changed the recipe.  -  29 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really liked this! It was easy to make and very tasty. I used sweet potato and cauliflower. Next time, I'm going to try adding peas.  -  24 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A-ma-zing! Better than any Indian Restaurant dish I've had yet, this was lick your plate that good! I used 4 medium sized sweet potatoes (adds a nice sweetness) in place of regular and used Silk Vanilla almond milk instead of cream. I also used a can of Heinz tomato soup, 1 tsp of sea salt for the salt and 2 large cloves of garlic minced. Everything else I did as the recipe states and it turned out fantastic. My house smells so amazing, I can't wait for my leftovers!! I have to admit, the thought of the tomato soup in this kind of turned me off at first but wow, the end result is incredible! Thank you for sharing this, it's a winner that I will be making again and again!!  -  15 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
