Chickpea and Potato Creamy Tomato Curry

This recipe for Vegan Tomato Curry with Chickpeas and Potatoes is flavorful and delicious, and makes a wonderful vegan dinner. Try it with basmati rice, and bread like naan or roti. I love making chickpea curry, because it is easy and nutritious, and delicious; I have another recipe for chickpea curry here: Lentil Chickpea Curry. This particular curry recipe has chickpeas and potatoes, and has a creamy tomato base reminiscent to my vegan butter chicken-style cauliflower recipe.

Rather than using a premade curry paste or powder, this recipe uses a blend of herbs and spices that you can probably already find in your pantry. You can whip this recipe up in just 30 minutes. Most of the time is spent waiting for the potatoes to cook, so it’s a great meal to make when you don’t want to spend too much time over the stove.
