Potato & Chickpea Curry with Rice

Potato & Chickpea Curry with Rice

Serves 8

For the full Indian curry experience, serve this dish with warmed naan (Indian flat bread), sliced green onion, and a bowl of spicy chutney. Be sure the lid to the Dutch oven closes tightly over the spinach so no steam escapes while the dish is cooking.
  • 3 cups jasmine rice
  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
  • 3 large russet potatoes, cut into ½-inch cubes (6 cups)
  • 3 15-oz. cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 14.5-oz. cans diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 medium onion, diced (1 cup)
  • 9 cloves garlic, chopped (3 Tbs.)
  • 3 Tbs. curry powder
  • 3 cups tightly packed baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped (4 oz.)

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Generously spray inside of 5 1/2- or 6-quart Dutch oven with cooking spray.

2. Stir together rice and 2 1/4 cups broth in pot. Top with potatoes, season with salt and pepper, then add chickpeas.

3. Combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, curry powder, and remaining 3/4 cup broth in bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Spread tomato mixture over chickpeas, then top with spinach. Cover pot, and bake 53 minutes, or about 3 minutes after aroma wafts from oven.

Crockpot Comment -- I put it in the crockpot like someone else suggested and it was not ready on time!!! It's been on high for 2 hours now and still the potatoes are not cooked. (My crockpot is fine.) I just wanted to mention this for others. So, tonight we will eat salad. This meal will end up as "leftovers" for tomorrow night.

Funny how people try recipes and they're expert all of sudden ,leaving lame remarks

Julie - 2016-03-01 17:17:50

Can I use any other potatoes i.e. sweet potatoes???

A big FYI. Use three cups of COOKED rice. Otherwise, you end up with a very large undercooked dish.

Wow - get a clue and read some Indian food blogs. What a way to mess up Indian food ...

Haven't tried this one either

A favorite.

I liked this. I cut the curry powder and added garam masala, cumin, turmeric and coriander. I also added ginger root as a lot of Northern Indian cooking has ginger in it. Next time I will add a serrano or jalapeno pepper or two for some spice. Very good!

Yummy! Next time around, I'd cut the rice in half but keep everything else the same (including the water). I did not use a Dutch Oven, just a regular pot with a rather tight-fitting lid.

This recipe sounds amazing!

Just made this in my crockpot. Excellent! Smells heavenly and tastes delicious. Easy to make in the crockpot. I coated the crock very lightly with olive oil, combined everything as desribed, then covered it and cooked on high for about 1-1/2 hours.

Lisa Bentz - 2012-04-10 20:23:47

what is the serving size? this has a lot of carbs and sodium!!!! perhaps one should use only fresh products, not canned?

I recommend you add a serrano pepper and use less rice.....yet another way to introduce spinach to Marjorie. On second thought, she probably wouldn't like the pepper.

I've made this several times and it always comes out tasty!

kim - 2010-05-15 01:23:17

I strongly recommend leaving out the rice and going easy on the potatoes.
