Sweet and Spicy Curry with Chickpeas

"One of my clients gave me a shorter version of this recipe before I left work for the day. Added a couple of things to it and loved it. Thanks a lot, Laurie. You were right -- good meal! This sauce goes well with rice or with pita bread. What's great about this recipe is you can add as much spice as you would like. "

  1. Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the turkey with onion and garlic in the oil until the meat is no longer pink, 10 to 15 minutes.

Season with salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.

Delicious. I forgot to use the garlic and it didn't matter. I also left the turkey out. This dish tastes amazing and is so quick to make.

I like it because it's quick, easy, tasty and healthy. Next time I think I may add raisins or mango.

May have been because I used madras curry, but I didn't care for this recipe. Also it was too sweet for my tastes.

This was a big hit for the whole family! We'll definitely be making this dish again, next time with more chickpeas!

Awesome recipe but I did make lots of changes as follows: 0) used bacon grease to cook up onion 1) did not use turkey - didn't have 2) used a whole can of coconut milk plus at least one cup of...

Great recipe !! I changed the canned tomatoes for real ones, added curry paste instead of plain powder, and added cubes of tofu instead of the meat. It was really great !!
