Recipe Card


  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 large yellow onion, small dice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
  • 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 (14-ounce) can can coconut milk
  • 1 (14-ounce) can chickpeas, drained
  • 3 small butter potatoes, peeled and medium diced
  • pinch to taste Kosher salt
  • pinch to taste black pepper


  • Step 1

    In a large pot, melt butter on medium-low heat. Add the diced onion and sweat the onion until slightly translucent. As butter burns easy, make sure to scrape the bottom of the pot to prevent any onion from burning.

  • Step 2

    Add the garlic, ginger and chickpeas and diced potatoes. Sauté for a few minutes or until fragrant, scraping the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add the garam masala, coriander, paprika, cinnamon and chili flakes and sugar. Let everything cook for about 1 minute, stirring occasionally

  • Step 3

    To the pot, add the canned tomato, coconut milk and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm over cooked long grain rice with a slice of naan bread. Enjoy!
