Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Small Pot
  • 1 Medium Pan
  • 1 Colander
  • Step 1 - Cook the Rice
    1

    Cook the Rice

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil or use a non-stick baking sheet. Place a colander in the sink. Bring small pot filled with 1¼ cup water, a pinch of salt, and rice to a boil. Cover with a tight fitting lid, reduce heat to very low (smaller quantities of rice can burn easily), and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and set aside, covered.

    Prepare the Curry

    Heat a medium pan and 1 Tbsp. olive oil over medium heat. When pan and oil are hot, add onion, half the garlic, and curry powder. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until garlic and onion are soft. Add chickpeas, diced tomatoes, and Sriracha. Simmer on low for 6-8 minutes, or until sauce starts to thicken. Sriracha (SEE-ratch-ah), is a versatile Thai-based hot sauce that provides the perfect heat in this dish.

  • Step 4 - Toast the Naan
