Drum rolls: here is my Lentil Chickpea Yellow Curry. It is seriously the best curry ever, no joke, no kidding or false exceptions.
It is a mouthwatering dream in a bowl, warming, curry infused, satisfying, full of flavor, creamy, drool-worthy, and so addicting.

Heat a large casserole. Use a bit coconut oil or just vegetable broth for frying the onions and garlic.
Do this for at least 3 minutes, before you add coconut milk and lentils, yellow curry paste. Then cook this for 20 minutes – please not longer. We don’t want the ingredients mushy or overcooked.
Just 5 minutes from the end, add chickpeas.
