Salt and pepper 

Cumin

Curry Powder

Tumeric

Ground ginger

Instructions: 

  1. In a medium saucepan, saute onion and garlic in oil until translucent. Stir in spices* until aromatic. 
  2. Add bell pepper** and cook until softened. 
  3. Meanwhile, boil potatoes in salted water for 5 minutes or until tender. 
  4. Add boiled potatoes and canned tomato. Stir and let cook for 1-2 minutes. 
  5. Stir in chickpeas and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and cook until chickpeas are soft, about 10-20 minutes.

*I don’t use specific measurements for the spices. Season to your liking!
