The Easiest Chickpea Curry (and quick too)

I’d struggle to find an easier chickpea curry that outdoes this for taste. The quantities below serve 2 people, so double up for a family. I found the recipe at BBC Food, its by Manju Malhi, who some might remember as the BBC Food and Drink winner in 1999.


How to do it

  1. Heat a deep saucepan or a medium sized wok and add the oil or butter followed by the onions and garlic.
  2. Fry the mixture till the onions are caramelised. Then add the salt, cumin, coriander, turmeric and red chilli powders. Mix for a minute and tip in the tomato. Cook the sauce until it begins to thicken.
  3. Add ¼ cup of water and stir. Then tip in the chickpeas and mix. Mash a few of the chickpeas while cooking. Cover and simmer for five minutes. Then add the ginger and the garam masala. Cook for another minute.
  4. Serve with pitta breads or plain basmati rice.
