-1 can of chick peas

-2 potatoes, chopped into cubes

-1/2 cup of curry powder

-3 tbsp of corn oil

-3/4 cup of water

-3/4 cup of coconut milk

-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

-1/2 onion, finely chopped

-1 tsp adobo seasoning

-1 tsp chicken seasoning

-1 tsp onion powder

-1 tsp garlic powder

-1/4 cup of scallion, chopped (optional)


Begin by turning your stove on medium heat. Once your pan is warm, add your oil and allow your oil to warm for 1 minute. Next you’ll add your chopped onion and garlic and sauteé quickly for 20 seconds. After you’ve sauteéd your onions and garlic, add your curry powder and continue to stir for 1-2 minutes. This allows you to toast your curry and bring out the true flavor. Add your coconut milk and continue stirring. Stir for another minute and add your chick peas. Continue to stir as you add your potatoes, and at this point you may want to lower your heat because your mixture could be getting very thick. Add your adobo and chicken seasonings as well as your onion and garlic powder at this time and stir until seasonings are well distributed. Your mixture should be thick at this time, go ahead and add 3/4 cups of water. Turn your heat low, and allow to simmer for 3-5 minutes. Top it off with scallion for a beautiful presentation and enjoy!
