Is there anything better on a cold winter’s night than a delicious curry?
Try this eggplant and chick pea curry made from scratch with all the spices. We have a large range of spices here at HealthBuzz that would get you on your way.
For a non-plant based option, you can swap out the chickpeas for your choice of protein, such as chicken.
