Chickpea Curry

This is my new favourite recipe. It’s super easy and tasty. I know you’re probably supposed to have rice with this sort of thing, but I prefer couscous. It’s faster to prepare than rice, and (in my opinion) tastier. But I have been brought up on rice-based meals, so maybe it is just boring to me!

1 onion
2 cloves garlic
tablespoon oil
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garam masala
2 tsp ground cumin
handful of fresh coriander, chopped
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 can diced tomato

Slice onions finely; crush the garlic. Heat oil in a pan. Add onion and garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring until soft.
Add the chilli powder, salt, turmeric, paprika and cumin. Stir over heat for 1 minute.
Add chickpeas and tomatoes, stir until combined. Simmer, covered, over low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garam masala and coriander. Simmer, covered, for another 5-10 minutes.

  1. This looks delicious. Might have to cook it up for my brother sometime, he’s been a vegetarian for a few months now.
