One-Pot Vegan Chickpea and Potato Curry

I used to make curry like this: one pot had rice in it, one pot had the sauce, then I’d either steam the veggies or roast them. Too many dishes, amiright? TOO MUCH WORK. Never happening again now that I figured out how to make One-Pot Chickpea and Potato Curry. Which wasn’t as hard as I thought – I usually underestimate or overestimate my abilities. There is no in between. 😂😂

How to Make Chickpea and Potato Curry in One Pot

Grab your deepest, largest pan or a pot. You’re going to cook the rice a little, and then add the potatoes and chickpeas in to simmer along with it. I like really soft chickpeas in my curry and simmering them with the rice helps a lot. You can use whatever potatoes you like the best.

Once the rice is almost cooked through, it’s time to add the curry paste, coconut milk, seasonings, and your choice of vegetables. I had frozen peas and fresh broccoli on me which is a super tasty combination. I’ve also added cauliflower, frozen broccoli, red bell peppers…etc. Frozen corn is really good with green curry paste (and yes, you can use green curry paste if you prefer!)

The curry paste I use is store-bought. You can always make your own, but I love the simplicity and ease of just buying it. Thai Kitchen curry paste is vegan and really flavorful.

For dishes like this, I always opt to use canned coconut milk. It’s much creamier than coconut milk in a carton and more authentic to this dish. However, if you’re worried about the fat content – do half coconut milk, half another kind of non-dairy milk.

I did not add additional salt to mine (the veggie stock I use has sodium), but if you feel it needs a little something – go ahead!

At this point you’re just going to let the vegetables cook through/thaw, and all the flavors marry together, which only takes another 5 minutes or so.
