  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk
  • 1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, drained & rinsed


  • Cook garlic & ginger: in a large skillet over medium high heat, cook the garlic and ginger in 1 tablespoon oil (coconut oil or olive oil). Stir and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. 
  • Add curry paste: add curry paste to the skillet and stir into the garlic and ginger.
  • Add remaining ingredients: stir in the coconut milk and chickpeas. 
  • Simmer: lightly simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, until thickened. Season with salt & pepper to taste. 
  • Serve: serve warm, optionally with a side of white rice and topped with chopped cilantro.


  • Coconut milk: you can use regular or lite coconut milk. Regular coconut milk will make a creamier curry.
