If you are like me and love curries you are going to love this chickpea spinach curry not only for its flavor but because it is super easy to make.

I was able to make this recipe in my pressure cooker. You can use your own pressure cooker or get this one that is is just the bomb. I have never had a pressure cooker before because I was really afraid of them but this one not only is super easy to use but you can cook a multitude of things since it is also a rice cooker, slow cooker and much more.

Come May, when I start my physician assistant program, I am taking it with me so that I can make easy, healthy recipes.

If you don’t have a pressure cooker you can also do this recipe in the stove top, however, it will take you longer. I used pre-soak chickpeas and in the pressure cooker it takes only about 20-25 minutes. In the stove top I anticipate that it will take at least double if not triple the time.

I have also made a video to show you how super easy this recipe so make sure you take a look.

I have made this a multitude of times and I have been able to freeze it no problem. The only thing I have to do is re-heat it and make some rice for it. So easy and quick. Great for a meatless dinner.

By the way, I am currently in Thailand for cooking school. I am learning the best recipes. Thai flavor is just simply out of this world. I will be posting a couple of recipes upon my return so if you like Thai food you are in for a treat. I will also show you the places I visited so that if you ever have a chance to come you can experience these amazing places as well so stay tuned!

Anyhow, I leave you with this chickpea spinach curry that is nothing but easy, delicious and healthy.

Chickpea spinach curry

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 8 servings

Total Time: 25-30 minutes


  • 14 oz coconut cream
  • 1 lb pre-soaked chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp red curry paste
  • 1 lb frozen chopped spinach
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 4 cups water
  • Celtic salt
  • Ground pepper to taste


Add all the ingredients to your insta-pot or pressure cooker and set for 20-25 minutes. Serve with brown rice.

You may freeze leftovers.

Note: If you would like to make this recipe on the stove top the chickpeas will take double the time if not triple. I also set my instapot to 30 minutes because I used 1 1/2 lbs of chickpeas.

  2. Rosanna,

    estan de muerte, te los recomiendo. Muy faciles de hacer y buenisimo.

    Puff, referente a lo de NYC, ahi tantas cosas de por ver, hacer y comer q es dificil pero vamos lo tipico, central park, times square, china town (canal street es el metro), los museos, downtown donde las torres gemelas. Si quereis comprar cosas de marca baratas como ropa y tal en china town y un centro comercial q esta al lado de las torres gemelas q se llama Century 21. Tb si no vais a ver la estatua o si vais a verla da igual :-) coger el ferry q va a Staten Island q sale desde downtown Manhattan q es gratis y os dais un paseo en el barco pues a la entrada a Manhattan otra vez es bonito y os podeis sacar fotos guapas :-0

    Restaurantes….pues en el village area ahi mogollon. Tb Chelsea market q es donde tienen el canal de television de comida de aqui en Estados unidos y tienen restaurantes, tiendas de instrumentos de cocina y una panaderia muy famosa. Esta muy bien

    Bueno pues nada espero q te ayude un poco :-)


  3. Vegetables aren’t my thing but those do look interesting. :)

    I’m here for the peanut butter pie mention. Is it a healthy version?! Peanut butter pie is one of my favorite things ever. This morning I made a speculoos version of peanut butter pie but it’s super bad for you. I look forward to your version!

  4. Texanerian,

    not really that healthy. The crust has oatmeal, peanuts, cookies, butter and soy milk. The problem is the top consistency with the peanut butter, condense milk and cheese. It seems not to want to stay together much :-)

    I am thinking of the next trial which will be the last one. The pie is really yummy but the consistency is not there….

  5. Muchísimas gracias Myriam!!!!!! Me refería a tiendas concretas donde comprar menaje o ingredientes, tiendas de estas que uno no se puede perder cuando está en una ciudad.
    Muchas gracias por tus recomendaciones, las tendré en cuenta!

  6. Spinach and potato pakoras looks so crispy and perfect. You have a nice space here :)

  7. With premium chances grossed with Cheap Flights to Sydney one may never feel bored or left out in the vibrant cosmopolitan like this harbor city.

  8. I made these, loved them and shared them with others who loved them too. I also added fennugreek to the last batch for a unique Indian twist. Thank you for this delicious healthy recipe. YUMMO!
