Cooking TimeDietLevelServes
60 minutesveganintermediate2


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ onion, finely sliced
  • garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½–1 tsp chili flakes (to taste)
  • 25g fresh root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 260g tins chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2-3 whole tomatoes, chopped
  • 240g rice, to serve
  • 400g sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite-sized cubes
  • salt and black pepper


  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the cumin seeds and fry for around a minute, or until aromatic. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and cook for further 5–6 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the garlic, chilli flakes and ginger and fry for a further 3 minutes.
  • Add the sweet potato, tomatoes and chickpeas to the pan. Add enough water (approximately 250-300ml) to cover the chickpeas and sweet potatoes and bring to a simmer, stirring to mix everything together.
  • Cover with a lid and simmer over a medium–low heat, stirring now and again, for 25–30 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft and beginning to break apart and the sauce has thickened. If needed, add a little more water during cooking.
  • Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the packet instructions. Season the curry with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with the rice.
