Welcome to thoughtful, organic beauty
Hello Joyous is an organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
This wonderfully flavourful curry is a re-vamp from an older recipe that I've taken down because the photography was kinda awful, ha! I used to take photos from my phone and well, that's a thing of the past because my hubby Walker does all the photography for Joyous Health!
This Chickpea Coconut Curry is absolutely delicious and it's packed with plant-based foods from chickpeas, to cabbage, cauliflower and sweet potato.
You'll be totally satisfied with a hearty bowl of this Chickpea Coconut Curry because there is tons of gut-friendly fibre from all the veggies and the plant-based protein from the chickpeas.
There's lots of chopping in this curry but it was a breeze because we got a new set of knives that we've been using since last fall and we LOVE them!!
Having the right tools for the job makes cooking so much easier and that includes a good set of knives like these knives from Kilne which are awesome. Here's what I love about them:
When you make this Chickpea Coconut Curry, if you would like it thicker, just follow my instructions by adding some arrowroot powder mixed with water. You can also reduce it down by cooking it longer. You may wish to have it a soup which is fine too!
The origins of curry
There are many varieties of curry dishes originating from India. Traditionally it is a mix of spices including coriander, turmeric, cumin and ginger. Turmeric is definitely the hero in curry! Traditional cultures such as those in Asia have been using turmeric as a medicinal spice for thousands of years. You can add fish or animal foods like beef or pork to curry, but I decided to keep it vegetarian.
There are typically two types of curries, wet and dry. This is more of a wet curry but you can dry it up with more arrowroot powder and reduce it down as I mentioned above.
For the veggies, roughly chopping them is totally fine. If you feel fancy, you can chop your cabbage into ribbons. Speaking of cabbage , it is a detoxifcation superstar! It contains phytonutrients like glucosinolates that support the liver.

There is something magical about the taste and smell of cilantro that makes me feel so healthy!! I know not everyone loves it, but I sure do. I'm sure you know this hack, but I always cut my herbs with scissors.
