This Chickpea Coconut Mango Curry is:
- fresh and fruity
- hearty and satisfying
- super nutritious!
When you’re craving something comforting, filling and healthy, there’s nothing better than a veggie-packed curry. And this Chickpea Coconut Mango Curry is perfectly spiced, super flavourful and full of protein, fibre and nutrients.
You might think it sounds strange to use mango in a curry, but it’s honestly what makes this one so delicious, as it adds just the right amount of juicy sweetness. Cooked mango does sound strange, but adding it to this curry makes it become succulently tender whilst soaking up all the other flavours of the curry.
A squeeze of lime adds a touch of acidity and aroma, whilst cashew nuts provide an extra source of protein, and a little creamy nuttiness.
For vegetables, I decided to use carrots and spinach, but this curry is really easily customisable depending on what you like/have on hand/what you need to use up.
I kept it pretty simple in terms of herbs and spices, and went for curry powder, turmeric and coriander (cilantro). You can add some extra chilli to serve if you’re into spice.
This curry is great for batch cooking as leftovers keep well covered in the fridge for up to a few days, and it’s freezer-friendly too!
