Sunday Night Mushroom and Chickpea Curry

A community recipe by

This is a great easy curry for those who never make curries and never want to make curries. It take quite a long time to cook (2 hours simmering) but you can literally throw in the ingredients and leave it to simmer with the occassional stir, so its really easy. Great for a Sunday night, for some reason, with leftovers on a Monday night. Great for students! Great for vegetarians! Please try it! The recipe came from my sister who found it in a magazine and gave it to me and to a Pakistani friend and we have all cooked it for years (and I still do). You can buy creamed coconut in supermarkets or Asian grocers. The recipe is very forgiving: you can half or double any ingredient and it still works out OK. You need a big pot as it looks a lot, but the mushrooms and onions do become smaller with cooking.


Serves: 4-5

  • 4 onions
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder (ordinary strength)
  • ½ pint vegetable broth
  • 1 tin diced tomatoes (a large tin)
  • creamed coconut (a third of a block)
  • 1 tub fresh cream (a small tub)
  • 1 tin garbanzo beans (a large tin)
  • ½ sliced mushrooms
