Hey everyone!

I cooked this easy peasy chickpeas curry while in a quarantine in Honduras. I definitely didn’t have all the ingredients I usually use - that’s why I call it an improvisational curry!

But I approached it similar as I normally do when making Indian-inspired curry. A nice flavorful base, roasted veg and legumes of my own choice.

If you want to know about all the substitutes you can make - take time to watch this cooking video below. I explain everything in detail and you can also see me prepare it.

Hope you make it :) If you have any questions you can ask me on social media. Facebook or Instagram.

Have a great day and I hope you are safe,
