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.

    This was a big hit with the family and I will be making this again.  -  07 Jul 2017


    I’m a huge fan of Indian food but found this to be pretty bland. I won’t make again.  -  01 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is amazing. The flavor is so authentic that it's like eating at an Indian restaurant. We don't find condensed tomato soup where I live so I made it by blending a can of diced tomatoes, 2 tbsps of brown sugar, 1 tbsp of cornstarch and 1/2 tsp of salt. It turned out perfect.  -  26 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
