Indian food is one of my top choices on a cold night. It’s warm, sometimes spicy, and always delicious!
If you’ve ever made your own Indian food though, you’ll find there’s often a long list of ingredients. I’m an adventurous cook, so sometimes I’m up for that, but not on a busy weeknight.
This easy Chickpea Potato Curry however, couldn’t be simpler to make.
There are only a few ingredients, but it still has all those wonderful, fragrant Indian flavors that you love. You’re going to want to make this recipe tonight!

How to Make Chickpea Potato Curry
This vegetable curry is simple to make.
You’ll start by sauteing some onions, then add in your spices. Nothing fancy here, just a little garama masala (curry powder may also be used), garlic, jalapeno, and ginger … so fragrant and so delicious!
Then, you’ll add the chickpeas and potatoes, throw on the lid, and let everything simmer away. Give the curry a stir or two, and soon enough, you’ll have a delicious meal in a hurry.
I like serving this easy Chickpea Potato Curry over rice (basmati would be delish). Dinner is served!
