Vegan Chickpea Curry

½ cup basmati rice
1 cup water
2 pinches salt
2 medium onions
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1/2 lime
1-2 tbsp of your favourite curry paste. (a Tikka Masala curry paste would work great as well)
1 can coconut milk (1 can = 1.5 cups )
1 can chickpeas , drained and rinsed (1 can = ca. 400g with liquid)
1-2 tbsp soy sauce (try one tbsp first, add another if required)
2-3 medium tomatoes/ handful cherry tomatoes, chopped. The sweeter the better 😉
1 cup basil leaves
1 tsp maple syrup (sugar is fine too)

  1. Add the rice, water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil (could also be done the Indian way from our Buddha Bowls). Keep an eye on the rice - when the water is boiling put a lid on it, reduce the heat to low and cook for another 8-10 mins.
  2. While this is happening chop the onions, garlic, basil and juice the lime.
  3. Put the oil and onions into a large pan and cook on a low-medium heat until the onions start to soften and turn clear, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic for a further 1 minute.
  4. Add 1 tbsp curry paste and the milk, stirring until the curry is dissolved. Add another pinch of salt. Taste test - if you’d like your curry a little stronger then add another tbsp.
  5. Throw in the chickpeas (and chopped green veg if you’re using it) and soy sauce, and cook on a medium heat for around 5 minutes, bringing the curry to a boil. If it starts to burn, reduce heat immediately.
  6. Add the chopped tomatoes, chopped basil, lime juice and gently simmer the curry for another 2 minutes. Taste test again, and if desired add a second tbsp soy sauce and the syrup or brown sugar. Give it another stir.
  7. The rice should be done by now too - fork it through to make it fluffy.
  8. Serve the curry and rice together with papadoms and naan bread as optional sides.
