Green Tomato Curry

A friend gave us a few green tomatoes and an assortment of green peppers. I wasn’t sure what to do with the tomatoes and decided to try them in a curry.

I diced the tomatoes, chopped the peppers and cooked in a pan along with red onion. I then added a can of chickpeas, a can of coconut milk and a Tbsp of curry powder and dried basil. Was really good.
