Chickpea & Pea Protein Masala

We love masala. This masala blend is a healthier version to our classic chickpea masala, using pea protein instead of coconut cream. The pea protein adds a creaminess to the sauce and with the chickpeas as well it is a super protein hit.

It’s fairly mild, so if you prefer your masala hot… add extra chillis. Couple with plain rice for a simple and quick, healthy vegan meal.


300g chickpeas (cooked)

1 large onion

3 dessert spoons of pea protein


1 cup water

Spice Blend

3 teaspoons turmeric powder

1.5 teaspoon garlic powder (or fresh garlic)

1.5 teaspoon ginger powder (or fresh ginger)

4 teaspoons gram masala*

3 teaspoons cumin seeds

Salt & Pepper to taste

Method: Making Your Chickpea Masala Curry

1) Heat dry wok and add spices to warm until aromatic… remove from heat and leave to cool

2) Heat oil in wok and add roughly chopped onions… lightly brown the onions

3) Add ready cooked chickpeas, spices, salt and pepper and mix

4) Mix water and pea protein

5) Add water/pea protein mix to wok, bring to boil then lower heat and simmer

6) Remove from heat after a few minutes and either serve right away or cover and leave to marinade while you prepare the the rest of the meal and/or eat your popadoms
