Add farro and a pinch of salt to a medium saucepan over high heat, and cover with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until grains are tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan, off heat.
Trim, deseed, and chop the red bell pepper(s) into 1 inch pieces. Trim and chop the baby bok choy into 2 inch pieces. Peel and thinly slice the carrots. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
Heat 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add chopped red bell pepper, chopped baby bok choy, sliced carrot, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until vegetables begin to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add massaman curry paste to the large pot and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chickpeas, coconut milk, tamari, turbinado sugar, and a pinch of salt. Bring the curry to a simmer and cook until chickpeas are warmed, 4 to 6 minutes.
Halve the lime(s), juice one half (1 lime), and divide the other half (1 lime) into wedges. Remove curry from heat and add lime juice. Taste, and add salt as necessary.
Divide the cooked farro between bowls. Top with chickpea massaman curry and serve with lime wedges. Bon appétit!
