RECIPE | Ten-minute Coconut Chickpea Curry
Midweek evenings are often an interesting juggle trying to cram in a million and one things after work like food shopping, the parenting malarkey, a spot of life-admin, a laundry load (or two) and a Netflix episode (or three). Sometimes it feels like there’s no time to even eat dinner, let alone prepare it! This super-speedy creamy chickpea curry is a great option for rustling up a tasty meal in 10 minutes flat with a few simple kitchen cupboard ingredients. That’s quicker (and healthier) than ordering a takeaway!
Ingredients (serves 4):
- 1 x 400g can chickpeas, drained
- 1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 1 x 400ml can coconut milk
- 2 x medium onions, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 100g fresh spinach
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- ½ teaspoon each of ground coriander, paprika & cumin
- Heat a little olive oil in a large pan then add the onion and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the spices.
- Pour in the drained chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and coconut milk. Simmer for 8 minutes.
- 2 minutes before it has finished cooking, add the spinach to the pan and pop a packet of rice in the microwave.
- Serve the curry on a bed of rice and garnish with fresh coriander.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
