Chickpea Tikka Masala

This Chickpea Tikka Masala recipe is a vegan take on the traditional Indian dish chicken tikka masala. Inspired by this dish, ours is a lighter version that uses chickpeas instead of chicken to make it vegan-friendly.

This dish is surprisingly quick and easy to prepare and is packed with plant-based protein for a satisfying meal. We recommend serving it with naan and basmati rice for the tastiest experience. Pro Tip: If you want to make extra and save it for later - this dish can be stored in the freezer for up to three months and easily reheats.
