Cozy food season, we are looking STRAIGHT ‘atcha. While stuffing our respective faces with one-pot beef sweet potato chickpea curry.
Ahhhh yesssss. It’s comfort foods like this glorious pot right here that remind me why fall is the freaking best season.
And really, there is absolutely NO GOING WRONG with a good curry. Especially when your curry story involves fall-apart tender beef cubes, soft sweet potatoes, tons of chickpeas, and the most flavorful spiced curry sauce ever.
Best ever piled over fluffy jasmine rice. Also the best ever straight from the skillet. Again, no going wrong here in your face-shoving methods.
A basic rule of thumb for curries is that the longer you let them simmer for, the more incredible the flavors are gonna be and the more tender the meat will be too. Waiting is the hardest part but is WORTH IT here. Curries are one of the most flavor-filled meals ever if you do it right.
Basically we’ve got three steps to this beef sweet potato chickpea curry. Brown the meat and veggies, start building your sauce base, then simmer for a good 35 minutes (or longer if you have the time!)
Shove curry in face at unnaturally high rates of speed. Rinse and repeat.
There’s nothing quite like a big heaping pile of this flavor city beef sweet potato chickpea curry piled over fluffy mountains of rice. Make sure you spoon up more of that sauce on top because its GOOOOLD.
And your dinner for the rest of cozy food season and beyond is looking like pure gold, letz be honest.
