Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until halfway tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and reserve potato-cooking water.

  • Place carrots into a pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until halfway tender, about 4 minutes. Drain.

  • Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Saute chicken and onion in hot oil until onion is translucent and chicken is no long pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Reduced heat to medium. Stir garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, cloves, and cayenne pepper into chicken mixture; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir potatoes, carrots, garbanzo beans, diced tomatoes with juice, tomato paste, and lemon juice into chicken mixture. Pour reserved potato water into chicken mixture until desired consistency is reached, about 2 cups. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and potatoes and carrots are tender, 10 to 15 minutes more. Season with salt and black pepper.

Cook's Notes:

You can parboil the potatoes in carrots in a microwave, if desired.

You can used 1 1/4 pounds pork instead of chicken, or omit all meat, if desired.

You can use plain diced tomatoes instead of fire-roasted, if desired. You can use regular curry powder instead of Madras curry powder, if desired.

This recipe is delicious and makes a lot! I could have cut it in half for just the two of us but I think it will be just as good as leftovers. I had to mix everything in my Dutch oven after cooking meat on onions in my largest skillet as the skillet wasn t big enough to hold all the ingredients. I went heavy on the curry and cayenne since we like spicy and a bit lighter on the cinnamon and cloves. It was wonderful! I m enjoying trying new recipes to use the bottle of curry powder I bought. Thanks for sharing this is a keeper! Read More

This was an excellent Indian dish and very authentic! My Indian friend told me it needs cilantro but otherwise it was perfection. I served this over a bed of rice. Read More
