Hi to all the cooking fans out there!
So sorry haven’t blogged for awhile, been another busy week. And unfortunately won’t be able to blog for another week as we’ll be visiting my motherinlaw but i’ll be recording some of her delicious foods!!
But for now, this post is dedicated to my version of the classic Chickpea curry. My husband and I are trying to venture onto vegetarian meals more and after realizing that I had a can of chickpeas in the cupboard, chickpea curry it was!
Prep time: 5-10minutes
Cooking time: 30minutes (+45minute simmer time)
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 onion
- olive oil for frying
- 1tsp. cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 2tsps. ground coriander
- 1/2 tsp. chili flakes
- hot water
- 1/2 can chopped tomatoes
- 1 tsp. garam masala
- 1 bunch of fresh parsley
- salt and pepper
- First start by preparing your ingredients, by finely chopping your onions and garlic. And wash and drain your chick peas.
- Also wash your parsley and roughly chop, including stalks.
- Now start cooking by placing a medium saucepan with 3tbsps of olive oil onto medium-high heat.
- Once the oil is hot, start by frying your onions and garlic till soft.
- Next add your cumin powder, cinnamon, paprika and chili flakes. Stir and fry for a further 5minutes until the onions have browned from the spices.
- Next add your chopped tomatoes and stir into the onions.
- After, add in your chickpeas and stir thoroughly into the onion and tomatoes spice mix. Add hot water from the kettle to just cover over the chickpeas.
- Now add in your coriander powder, garam masala and salt & pepper to taste.
- Now add in your chopped fresh parsley, stir and lower heat to the lowest setting. Cover and simmer for 45minutes.
- Serve warm!
If you want more spice, then add tad more garam masalan and chili flakes to enhance the chili!
This recipe is also under the Category of ‘Winter Foods’ as I find the spice in this curry helps to warm you up!
