Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry

Fancy Indian cuisine today? Then I can recommend this recipe to you! Soooo delicious and actually so simple. If you can snip quickly, it only takes 15 minutes.

Moreover, this recipe is full of good ingredients that not only keep you full for a long time, but also taste extremely good. The chickpeas provide your body with lots of protein, the coconut milk with healthy fats and the sweet potato and rice with complex carbohydrates. However, if you want to keep the recipe low in fat, you can use less coconut milk and use more water instead.

The combination of savory and sweet makes this curry something very special. If you love this combination as much as I do, you should definitely have a look at my Mango-Coconut-Curry.

This recipe is enough for 3 medium as well as 2 large portions. Depending on how hungry you are right now. You can also adjust the amount of rice as you like. I always use a cup size as a guideline here. 1 small cup = 1 portion, 1 large cup = 2-3 portions. But don't forget to wash the rice to remove the impurities that come from the production process.

I used both the rice and the coconut milk from Reishunger*. I can really recommend this store to you! There you can find all about the rice heart. I also used the digital rice cooker*. I have never prepared better rice myself than the rice cooker does. This is an absolute relief for me in my kitchen. You only have to choose the amount, wash the rice and the cooker will do the rest. Boom, you have the perfect rice. And in the meantime, you can relax and prepare your dish on the stove. If you are interested in ordering something there, you can also use my discount code "reissnackicat". With this code you get a "Find your favorite rice" set worth 18€ (minimum order value: 15€). Jackpot, right?
