  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 recipe Curry Powder
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/4-inch-wide slivers
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • One 28-ounce can whole tomatoes
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Two 15 1/2-ounce cans chickpeas, rinsed, drained
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt


  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add curry powder; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onion, ginger, and garlic; cook until onion starts to soften and is well coated with curry mixture, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cilantro, tomatoes, apples, and chickpeas. Cover; simmer until apples are tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Uncover; simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon juice. Just before serving, stir in yogurt.
