Recipe Swap: Spinach and sweet potatoes liven up curried chickpeas | Food items

I appreciate curried chickpeas. Chana masala is one particular of my preferred dishes to get at Indian restaurants.

But generally though ingesting chana masala, I wish the chickpeas and curried sauce had some veggies mixed in with them.

This dish for curried chickpeas with spinach and sweet potatoes potentially does not qualify for genuine Indian but it does check a ton of my packing containers for a tasty vegetarian dish — that truly has tons of greens and not just a bunch of carbs.

I take a shortcut of making use of a superior-high quality curry powder instead of mixing all my possess spices the way most Indians cooks would. But I doctor the curry powder, as well, with some cumin, paprika and cayenne. You could include a small garam masala at the past moment, as well. The important thing below is to use the finest, freshest spices you can find or afford. If you have a spice grinder and total spices — now you are truly cooking.

This dish will come together immediately, in fewer than 30 minutes, so be confident to begin the rice very first if you program to provide that with the curry.
