Indian Chickpea Curry with Dosa

This vegan chickpea curry is so creamy and flavourful. If you like Indian food or healthy curries like I do, give a try to this recipe. It sure to not disappoint you. Plus served with homemade vegan dosa? Oh gosh, it’s so good. It’s different than the brown rice, you know.

The curry is made with spices like curry powder, cumin, garam masala, coriander, turmeric, salt and pepper. It tasted so good. The balance of spices was great I found. My family really enjoyed it. It’s tossed in coconut milk and spinach and tomatoes and is absolutely delicious. It makes great leftovers too.

Dosa

For the dosas, well I have to be honest. I’m not an expert, haha! I actually just made a couple times in culinary school and I kinda forgot about it. It’s just not something I cook often or think about cooking. This time though, I wanted to do something different and thought about making these chickpea crepes to serve with the curry. They were not thin enough, I should have used less batter, but the taste and texture were really great so I was please with them. They’re vegan and gluten-free. I use chickpea flour only, well along with sesame oil and seasonings. And I cooked them in coconut oil although ghee could be used of course.

If you don’t feel like making dosa, just serve the curry with rice. I like brown or black rice personally. It’s more nutritious and has a crunchier texture which I like. Do you have a favorite rice?

I made a lot of curries recently and that’s mostly because I got sick for a while so I was trying to boost my immune system using lots of garlic, ginger and other spices. You can check out those curry recipes too, one with chicken and another vegan one with chickpeas.
