Curry in a Hurry

I wanted to share this curry recipe specifically on a Friday because it’s quick, easy and totally tasty, making it the perfect meal to celebrate the end of a busy week!  What makes it even better, chances are you have most of these ingredients on hand.  If not, don’t fret, instead go out and buy them so you do!  Because knowing how to make a “curry in a hurry” is essential!

  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
