Mushroom & Chickpea Coconut Curry

25 min


One-bowl / one-pot

Vibrant foods are the best. Bright veggies are nutritionally packed, and visually appealing foods just cry out to be eaten. This is a super quick curry to whip together, making it a great option for busy nights. For this recipe, the key to making it speedy for us was to prep and chop ingredients while other ingredients were on the stove cooking.

  1. Add the oil, onion, garlic, and ginger to a large pot on high heat and sauté for 3 minutes. Add splashes of water as needed to deglaze the pot.
  2. Add the chickpeas and mushrooms to the pot and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the curry and paprika powder and sauté for one minute longer.
  4. Add the coconut milk, bell peppers, salt and pepper, and cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. Add the spinach and tomatoes at the end, and stir. When the spinach has wilted, remove from heat.
  6. Serve with rice or naan, and garnish with chili flakes and lemon wedges. Enjoy!


  • Speed it up: if you are serving the curry with red or brown rice, soak the grains overnight so that they cook faster the next day. Bonus: soaking also helps boosts nutrition!

This recipe is so yummy and nutritious 😋 I'm trying to make my husband like vegan food and it worked great 😛 😌 Thank you PUL ❤️

PUL Team - Sept. 18, 2021, 3:22 a.m.

So happy the hear the curry was enjoyed! Thank you, Ranim :)

Andreea BARBU - Sept. 16, 2021, 9:22 a.m.

I cooked this recipe many times before, always with a thai green curry flavor but without respecting the cooking minutes so in fact, overcooking it. I tried recently respecting the indications and it is even better. Many thanks to Cris S, since she mentioned the crunchiness I had never experienced with my overcooking. I guess you learn something everyday from each person and comment in your life :) .

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2021, 5:09 p.m.

Oh, Andreea, we're so happy to hear the curry was enjoyed! We love learning from other comments as well 🤩

Cath - Sept. 15, 2021, 3:31 p.m.

I love this curry, it's quite simple and yet so yummy! I've also modified the recipe to other vegetables, it works great <3

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2021, 5:13 p.m.

So happy to hear, Cath! Let us know if you find any good vegetable pairings 😃

Alicia - Sept. 12, 2021, 1:56 a.m.

very yummy!! I eat this all the time now :)

Becca - Aug. 30, 2021, 7:05 p.m.

This is one of my favorite go-to recipes! It is so easy and delicious. When I'm in a pinch I use canned mushrooms (fresh is best) but it still tastes great! I made a 4x batch for my family reunion to feed 31 people and it was a crowd pleaser even with all the non-vegan/vegetarians.

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2021, 2:10 a.m.

Aww we're so honoured a PUL recipe was enjoyed on the special occasion, Becca! Thank you 😃

Anna - Aug. 26, 2021, 3:33 a.m.

I made this dish for dinner and it was delicious and so easy! I added about ¼ tsp Sriracha for a bit of spice.

Shruti Bangera - Aug. 2, 2021, 3:16 a.m.

I came across your channel when me and my husband decided to go vegan. Absolute thrilled to have found you!
We love this coconut curry. I make it once every week and my husband goes, "Wow!" 😃
Super easy and super yum. Thank you for sharing!!

Lots of love and best wishes from Canada 🇨🇦 ❤

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2021, 7:32 a.m.

So honoured that PUL has been a part of you and your husband's journey! Thanks for being here, Shruti 🌻

The best recipe of Curry! Cheers from Puerto Rico.

Such a big compliment, Yorelyz! Hugs to Puerto Rico 🤗

Love your channel! Can’t wait to try these recipes ❤️ Also love the variety of your videos, so glad I found you

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 4:46 a.m.

We're so glad you found PUL too, Denise! Thank you for the review 🙂

Alejandro Pineda - July 10, 2021, 6:33 p.m.

Just “ unplanningly “ threw this recipe together in about 30 minutes, everything was already in my kitchen and it is so good, I can already tell this is going to be one of my go-to recipes!

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 3:20 a.m.

Woohoo! So lovely to hear, Alejandro, thank you for sharing 🤗

Marianne - July 9, 2021, 7:47 p.m.

I LOVE this recipe it's so tasty!! I kind of do my own thing with the spices but the way it's written is super good as well! So quick and easy all in one pot 🥰🥰🥰

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 3:05 a.m.

So glad you're enjoying it, Marianne! Love that you're adjusting to your own preferences as well :)

Viktorija - July 9, 2021, 1:20 a.m.

This is one of my favourite recipes to make in the colder months! There's nothing I would take away or add, it's just perfect 😊 I make this at least once a week in the winter 😄 Don't forget to squeeze some lemon at the end because it makes all the difference! 😉

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 9:52 p.m.

So happy to hear this, Viktorija, thank you for the review 😃

Jen - July 5, 2021, 10:34 p.m.

Oh my goodness...this was delicious! I loved it! I'm not very skilled at prep, so it took me quite a bit longer than 7 minutes, but it was well worth the time spent. And I really appreciate the quick link to create the shopping list and the feature to check things off as you go. What an amazing resource. Thank you! I can't wait to try more recipes (this was my first)!

PUL Team - July 7, 2021, 7:08 a.m.

We appreciate the review, Jen, and are so thrilled you enjoyed your first PUL recipe! We've just updated the cooking/prep time based on feedback, although we're glad the extra time was worth it. Happy cooking 😃

John - July 5, 2021, 2:08 p.m.

Recipe tastes nice but I do have an issue. Underestimating cooking times is useful for not scaring people away but there is a limit. The total cook time is 10 minutes and the first two steps themselves take 8 minutes, so the rest of the process is supposed to take only 2 minutes? Give me a break.

PUL Team - July 7, 2021, 6:54 a.m.

Hi there, John! Thank you so much for the review and honest feedback. This was totally a mistake on our end, as we didn't transfer the time over correctly when moving from our old site to the new one. It's been updated now. It's really helpful to make us aware of these gaps so that we can improve moving forward. So glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe, John, thank you! 🙂

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 4:18 p.m.

Mmmm! I just made it! It's so comforting and creamy and I love that the peppers are cooked just enough to retain their crunch (but kill those pesticides 😂)!

Isa-Bella Leclair - April 15, 2021, 9:49 p.m.

This is my boyfriend and I's favourite curry recipe!! It's flavourful and aromatic and the bell pepper and cherry tomatoes make it so fresh! On top of that it's easy and nourishing, love it!

PUL Team - April 19, 2021, 1:45 a.m.

Ooh what a compliment! Thank you, Isa-Bella Leclair 🤩

Gowri - April 5, 2021, 2:26 a.m.

This is one of my routine week day recipe. Tastes delicious. Shared this recipe with many of my friends.
Love your new website design!!!
