Potato and Chickpea Curry

Monday, 25 April 2011

I found this lovely recipe on the Total Greek Yoghurt website and knew that I had to give it a go.  I love curry and chickpeas and potatoes make for the perfect combination.  I have altered the recipe to make it lower in syns and have added potatoes as they are amazing in a curry. 

My total life savers since starting Slimming World are both used in this recipe.  They are:

150g TOTAL 0% Greek Yoghurt 
2 sprays of frylight
1 small onion, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tbs Madras curry paste
2 tins of chick peas, drained
200ml of tin chopped tomatoes
200ml vegetable stock (use a cube they are really good these days)
Half a bunch of coriander roughly chopped
2 Potatoes cubed and par boiled
Peel and dice a couple of small potatoes and par boil them.

Dispense a couple of sprays of oil and heat in a thick bottomed pan.

Add the chopped onions and fry until soft but not coloured, add the crushed garlic and curry paste.

Cook for a further 2 minutes then add chickpeas, par boiled potatoes, tomatoes, Total Greek Yoghurt and vegetable stock.

Simmer for 30 minutes, until reduced and a creamy sauce has been achieved.  I also added some chilli powder to give it a kick.

I cooked some wholegrain basmati rice and allowed it to cool.  I then added a few sprays of frylight to a frying pan and fried the rice along with an egg.

Yum, yum, yum!

All the ingredients used are free on a green day except for the Madras paste which is 2 syns per tablespoon.  I used 3 tablespoons which equates to 6 syns for the total recipe and just 2 syns per portion.  I had the leftovers for lunch the next day, bonus!


  1. This looks AMAZING :D I must try it some time, I've been looking to expand my curry skills! xx

  2. It looks awesome:) I make similar curry with chickpeas and spinach and it´s fabulous. Curry generally is a great diet food, I think, providing you don´t use korma or something creamy like that. Heard spicy food speeds up your metabolism as well so it really is a win win:)

  3. Perfect recipe. Like you, I love potatoes & chickpeas & curry, so it's literally a dream meal for me. Will definitely be cooking this one up. Thank you for sharing!

  4. ooooh my gosh - looks yum, we have that cooking spray at home too- it's so good! x

  5. Wow that looks delicious! Thanks for sharing
