Coconut Chickpea Curry

Maggie May Schill


A tip,this recipe can be made vegan by substituting vegan butter with the ghee.
I find this recipe goes smoother if you do 100% of all your veggie chopping and prep before you even begin heating the pan. The veggie prep is very time consuming on this one.
I suggest naan as the dide, it goes perfect.
Other than that,don't rush it. Slow. Loving care.
