I KNOW, It’s hasn’t even been two weeks since the mango curry homemade BBQ sauce and we’re eating curry again. Which is probably breaking a handful of rules from the “Food Blogger Handbook.”
Which, doesn’t actually exists just FYI. Don’t get all kinds of excited and go surfing internet land for the elusive book that will help you achieve your secret dreams of Food Blogger Stardom.
Instead, I highly suggest that you eat curry again. Except, you all know that by “suggest” I totally mean “demand.” Because IT’S OCTOBER ALREADY. Which means my cozy-socks-and-trendy-infinity-scarf wearing self wants to get her face all up in a big pot of creamy and so, SO SMOOTH pot of comforting chickpea goodness.

Add some of the coconut milk and curry paste, stirring until everything has dissolved and is smooth. Add chickpeas, soy sauce and remaining coconut milk, bringing the mixture to a boil.
Once it has boiled for a few minutes, add in the lime juice, tomato and sugar and let it simmer for a little bit. Next, stir in the cilantro.
