15 mins 30 mins 45 mins 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional for extra heat)
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 3 cups)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook until it becomes translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pot. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  3. Sprinkle in the curry powder, ground cumin, ground turmeric, and cayenne pepper (if using). Stir well to coat the onion mixture with the spices.
  4. Add the cubed sweet potatoes, chickpeas, diced tomatoes (with their juice), vegetable broth, and coconut milk to the pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
  6. Remove the lid and let the curry simmer uncovered for an additional 5 minutes to thicken the sauce slightly.
  7. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. If you prefer a spicier curry, you can add more cayenne pepper at this stage.
  8. Serve the Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry hot, garnished with fresh cilantro. It pairs perfectly with steamed basmati rice or warm naan bread.
