BM #118 Week 4 Day 3 - 

The last one in this series of my favorite food is this chickpea sweet potato curry with coconut milk. I saw an advertisement on my social media feed where they used chickpeas, sweet potato and coconut milk.

So I improvised this recipe with the ingredients and spices we love at home. This is a rich and creamy curry and full of flavors we love.

*Canned Chickpeas work great too.

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak about 3/4 cup of chickpeas overnight and boil them in a pressure cooker. Set aside.

In a heated pan, add coconut oil or any cooking oil and add cumin seeds.

After the cumin seeds crackle, add in the grated garlic and saute for a few seconds. 

Then goes the onion. Saute until it turns translucent. 

Add the sweet potatoes, crushed tomatoes, finely chopped colored peppers, cover and allow them to cook for about 10 minutes.

Sprinkle salt, turmeric, chana masala powder, boiled chickpeas and mix well. Allow the flavors to blend in.
