This chickpea curry nourish bowl makes for a simple weeknight dinner. Packed with a flavorful Indian chickpea curry, fresh vegetables, and healthy nourishing fats, this bowl can be easily customized based on whatever you have in your fridge.
This bowl gives me all the good feels, mostly because it reminds me of my mom’s wonderful cooking. I grew up eating home cooked Indian food every. single. day. I was also that weird kid in school who would bring interesting lunches packed in brown paper bags to school (and back then, Indian food was unheard of in the Midwest). While everyone else would opt for cafeteria food, I’d pull out my spinach curry sandwiches (green food didn’t exactly attract the best kind of attention back then).
One of my favorite dishes that my mom makes is chickpea curry (also known as chole in Hindi). It’s usually paired with fluffy deep-fried white flour bread, called batura. It’s so delicious, but not something I eat every day. But the chickpea curry, I could eat this a few times a week. So I combined one of my favorite childhood Indian curries with … a bowl! And wow, talk about making mom proud.
