I am a huge curry fan and I’m completely in love with this recipe. I normally make a big batch of it and eat it throughout the week, because meal prepping remember? Ain nobody got time to cook dinner from scratch every night. But it’s also a great dish to make on a weekend to impress your family and friends with, try something new and get your taste buds excited.

This is definitely that type of dish that gets even better with each day, so perfect for leftovers and meal-prepping.

Curry on steroids

If you’re on a hunt for a healthy but still flavorful curry recipe, you came to the right place my friend. This curry has got it all really. It is super comforting, high in protein, so perfect if you are very active and also if you are not because protein is essential for everyone. Furthermore, it is rich in fiber to keep you fuller for longer and make your digestion happy and strong, and packed with vitamins and nutrients from all of the whole, plant-based ingredients in there such as broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, and chickpeas.

Look at me, I just can’t stop selling this curry to you. You better trust me and make some tonight! Also, feel free to use any other veggies you like or have in your fridge, this recipe is very adaptable. Just make sure to read my pro tip below for best results.

Secret curry ingredient!

PRO TIP: I especially recommend adding carrot to this curry, or any curry for that matter. Carrot adds the perfect amount of sweetness to this dish so much so that you don’t need to add any other sweetener in as you usually would.

PRO TIP NO.2: If you want extra creamy and thick curry, grate your carrot! This makes a huge difference, trust me on this one.
