– Chickpeas (quantity of desired choice – I used 1 tin enough for 2 meals)
– Onions
– Garlic
– Ginger
– Indian spices: chilli powder, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, mixed curry powder.
– Salt
– Coriander
  • Heat up a medium sized wok or sauce pan and add oil.
  • Finely chop, or blend a few garlic cloves and a small piece of ginger ready to add to the heated oil.
  • Chop up 2 large onions ready to add to the garlic & ginger mix once they turn golden brown.
  • Season with salt and stir.
  • Add water and keep a medium flame.
  • In the meantime prep your chickpeas by washing, draining and removing the skin.
  • Once the onions have caramelised into a nice brown sauce, you may add the desired spices. You may also add fresh chilli for a spicy kick, and bay leaves & a small piece of cinnamon for an additional aromatic flavour.
  • Add some more water and leave to sizzle.
  • Once you are happy with the texture and flavour of the sauce, you may add in the chickpeas.
  • Leave to cook for approx 7-8 mins, and garnish with coriander.
You may also add in vegetables of your choice such as potatoes, peppers, or Indian cheese – paneer.
