NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 large shallots, halved
  • 1 2 -inch piece ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 15 -ounce cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (skin removed)
  • 2 cups frozen cut okra or sliced fresh okra
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for topping
  • Plain yogurt and naan bread, for serving (optional)
Directions
  • Pulse 3 chopped tomatoes, the shallots, ginger, jalapeno, curry powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor until smooth. Heat the vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Add the tomato mixture and cook, stirring often, until darkened and paste-like, 10 to 12 minutes (add water as needed if the mixture is sticking).

  • Add 2 1/2 cups water to the pot and bring to a simmer. Add the chickpeas and cook, stirring often, until the sauce thickens slightly, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir in the chicken, okra and cilantro. Cook, stirring gently, until the okra is crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide among bowls and top with yogurt, more cilantro and the remaining chopped tomato. Serve with naan.
