Chickpea Sweet Potato Curry

This is one of the tastiest curries we have made thus far. So good that my hubby wanted it again this week and we just had it last week!

1 yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3 cups of cooked chickpeas
5 small purple sweet potatoes (with white flesh), chopped into 3/4" pieces
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes
1 cup lite coconut milk (either in can or carton)
1 cup carrot puree* (I found this at Target)
1 T. Trader Joe's curry powder (or other yellow curry powder)
1-2 t. coconut sugar
1/2 t. salt
3 handfuls of fresh baby spinach

NOTE: You could replace purple sweet potatoes with orange if you cannot find them in the store. However, purple-skinned, white-fleshed potatoes are extra delicious in this curry.

* If you can't find carrot puree in the veggies section of your store, you can use baby food carrots (yes!) as long as the ingredients are simply "carrots."

Steamfry onion in the pressure cooker until tender, adding a small amount of water if the pieces begin to stick to the bottom. Add all other ingredients EXCEPT the spinach. Cook on high pressure for 6 minutes with QUICK RELEASE. Stir in spinach leaves, close the pressure cooker top for 5 more minutes (leaving heat on LOW). Serve!


  1. Was the carrot puree you found at Target in a can?

    1. No, it was actually found in a small turquoise blue box. The puree was inside a plastic bag in the box. You can also use baby food pureed carrots or boil and puree your own.
