2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Butter

1 fresh clove of garlic minced OR 1 tsp jarred

Did you know?

Curry is a blend of seasonings including cumin, ginger, turmeric, & red or green chilies. These are essential ingredients in most curries, however cinnamon, cardamom, pepper, coriander, fenugreek, mustard, clove, and nutmeg can be just as vital, along with fresh aromatics such as garlic, onion, cilantro, lemongrass, lime and lemon to name but a few. 

1. In a stock pot add carrots and onions to olive oil or butter; sauté on medium heat until carrots are fork tender, about 10 minutes.

2. Add chunked chicken, mix thoroughly with veggies.

Pro Tip: You can use beef or pork if you want to mix this up!

Pro tip: For a spicier curry, use red curry instead of yellow. 

3. Add coconut milk, beef broth, and curry, stir until evenly mixed. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 hour. Make sure chicken is cooked.
Add garbanzo beans and cook for an additional 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While mixture is cooking, prepare rice according to package instructions; set aside.

We use a rice cooker. This is something Dave introduced me & the boys to & we just love how easy it is!!

Pro Tip: If using rice cooker, rinse your rice 3x to wash off any hulls; you will see the water will run clear after the third rinse.

Cook your rice according to package instructions.

Serve curry over a bed of rice & enjoy!


You can add just about any veggie you like, however you will need to add ½ cup more beef broth for every cup of added veggies besides what is listed here.

Other veggie suggestions: 

  • Bell peppers- ½ cup
  • Broccoli, cut- 1 cup
  • Cauliflower, cut- 1 cup
  • Peas- ½ cup 
  • Potatoes- chunked into 1″ cubes- 1 cup
