Vegan chickpea curry is an easy and flavourful tomato-based curry great for a weeknight dinner. Adjust the spice level to your preference with this recipe and feel free to add in other greens and veggies like kale, spinach or broccoli for a healthy and satisfying meal!
Good thing I like chickpeas. And curry. Vegan chickpea curry, or chana masala, is pretty much a given in any Indian cookbook but the variations are endless.
I first turned to my trusty The Asian Vegan Cookbook, which is usually where I go first when looking for any veganized traditional Asian recipe. Her version did indeed sound mouth-watering and incorporated some of my favorite Indian spices like amchur and asafoetida.
However, not everyone has access to those spices so I wanted an easy recipe that would be accessible to most people with basic supermarket ingredients.

After a bit of scouring on the internet, I came across this recipe on The Guardian by Felicity Cloake which fit the bill.
This recipe is sure to please any Indian food-lover, or anyone with taste buds for that matter. It’s got just the right amount of spiciness, tanginess, garlicky-ness and cilantro-y-ness in a rich, tomato gravy.
It will also please the cook as there is minimal prep work to do and can be ready in just about 30 minutes if you’re good a multi-tasking (not me).
Finally, as I mentioned that the variations on this vegan chickpea curry are endless, it’s highly customizable. Feel free to play around with the spices. If you don’t have something, sub it out for something else.
Don’t like spicy food? Reduce the chili (wimp). Don’t like garlic? You probably don’t have a soul and there’s nothing I can do for you. Enjoy!
