Easy Chickpea Curry for a Crowd

This recipe is wonderful and freezes really well! Great if you want to feed a crowd of people without too much fuss, time, or money. I make this and freeze it for lunches.



  • 1 (6 lb.) restaurant size can of chickpeas, undrained
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed small (you can use regular large potato if you wish)
  • 2 cans of coconut milk
  • 1/2- 2/3 cup of Madras curry paste (or any other curry paste), the amount will depend on what paste you use, so start out with a bit then add more if you need it. (don't use powder though)
  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander (cilantro) or 1/2 to 1 Tbsp. dried


In a large pot, add all ingredients, and stir. Bring to boil, then simmer for at least 30-40 minutes with the lid off to let some of the liquid evaporate. Turn heat off, cover, and let sit overnight or for a few hours. The sauce will get thicker as it cools. Store in containers or serve on a bed of rice. Add salt and pepper to taste if desired. Serves 10-12
