Some crusty bread on the sides will make a complete meal.  I won’t mind this stew with a bowl of steamed white rice though.

I have a few more chickpea curries on the site. While this Sweet Potato Chickpea recipe is cooked in an Instant Pot, I have done Chickpea Curry or Chana Aloo in a Dutch Oven and a Sweet Potato Chickpea Curry prepared in an Instant Pot.

How to make

On busy days like these, all you need is a quick, fuss-free recipe to cook.  This Slow cooker Chickpea Sausage Stew is the perfect ‘dump everything and forget it’ kinda recipe.  I had made this Soup just a day before leaving for my brother-in-law’s ring ceremony.  My home was a complete mess.  The house help didn’t turn up for a week.  With all that extra workload, I had to complete a few recipe testing and shooting.  I also had to clean up my refrigerator before leaving. Usually, when I run out of vegetables, I soak some beans for the next day.

With all the last-minute prep, I just dumped cooked chickpeas, leftover veggies, and some sausage.  By the time I was done with my work I was dead tired.  But the good thing was, I had my dinner ready.

Serve With

There was some leftover No-knead rustic bread, that I toasted.  This stew is light and with delicate flavors. A bowl of this is surely going to give you comfort on a cold winter night.
