30 minute Indian Thai Curry

Curries are, in my opinion, the easiest vegetarian friendly one pot meal.  You almost always have left overs and the flavor is totally better the next day!
I took a lil’ different spin on this traditional thai dish by adding an indian flare. I added some chickpeas and substituted quinoa for rice for a protein packed meal.
Chickpeas are high in fiber and are a great protein option for vegetarians.
