This vegan curry recipe is perfect for a fast Instant Pot recipe. We used canned chickpeas for this recipe. You could easily use dry garbanzo beans (chickpeas) but would need to cook for longer. If you make that choice, adjust time as needed for dry beans. I have the Instant Pot DUO60 and love it for larger recipes, but it also works great for a side like this!

We usually serve this chickpea vegan curry recipe with some basmati rice and steamed or roasted curried vegetables. It makes for a perfect fast entree if you are pressed for time. In fact, if you put this in the Instant Pot and then make some steamed veggies and a bit of rice, you’ll have dinner on the table in under half an hour! That’s a great vegan meal that is also full of flavor and easy!
