Healthy, Cheap and very Filling. I must say I'm not much of a peas/beans fan but this tasted shamazing so I've decided to share my recipe below, Enjoy :-)
This is a nice Indian delicacy, quite similar to Nigerian beans ..
-2 tbsp rapeseed oil
-2 red or white onions
-2 garlic cloves
-½ tsp Salt
-1 tsp cumin powder
-½ tsp coriander powder
-½ tsp turmeric powder
-½ tsp red chilli powder
-2 fresh tomatoes
-2 x 400g /14oz can chick peas
-6cm piece of root ginger
-pinch of garma masala
Prep time- 20minutes
Chop the onions and tomatoes, then crush garlic and set aside.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add onions and garlic and fry until the onions caramelise. Now add the salt, cumin, coriander, turmeric and red chilli powders. Cook for a minute before adding the tomato and continue to cook until the sauce begins to thicken.
Now add 4 fl oz of water and stir. Add the chick peas that have been drained and rinsed and mix thoroughly. Mash a few of the chickpeas while cooking.
Cover and cook for 5/10 minutes then add grated fresh ginger and the garam masala and cook for a further minute.
Your Chickpea Curry should look like this below.
I served mine with some warm Pitta bread and hubby had his with some Naija bread :-)
