  • 1 tin of chickpeas drained
  • 1 medium sized sweet potato peeled and cubed
  • 5 fingers of okra sliced
  • 1 tablespoon of curry powder mixed into a paste with 2tbsp of water
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoon of coriander
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon of chilli powder
  • ¼ cup of tomato or paste
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon of tapioca flour mixed with 2tbsp of water optional
  • 2 tablespoon pf coconut oil


  • Melt the coconut oil in a large pan on low-medium heat and proceed to add the curry paste and stir frequently
  • Now add the cumin and paprika, all the while stirring. As the curry mixture begins to reduce a little, add the onion, garlic, pepper, coriander and sautee until the onions have softened.
  • Once the onions have softened, now is a good time to stir in tomato paste and fold in the chickpeas, okra and sweet potato.
  • Pour the water and tapioca mix into the pan and season with salt (according to taste).
  • Bring the pan to the boil and allow to simmer down (with pot covered)
  • Cook the curry for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are soft. During this time you will notice the sauce should have thicken and spicy flavours more concentrated. Keep an eye on the level of liquid in the pan, if the liquid level drastically drops add ½ - 1 cup of water.
  • Serve accordingly.
