I've been wanting to try chick pea's for ages but never got up the courage - wondered if anyone's got a tried and tested recipe for curry with them? ;)


I haven't ... but mmmm love chick pea's :) and I'm fussy :) They're good in Chilli. Oh actually the "I'm being good" meal I get from the Indian has them in the sauce and they go really well.

Helpful aren't I? lol

hehe it's Meat Koftas (meatballs!) in a chickpea and tomato spicy sauce - is gorgeous ... and not the creamy kind of curry I normally go for. And because the sauce has chick peas in it, i don't have it with rice ... so it's me being good lol
This is a lovely recipe for Chickpea Curry and I have made it a few times.


Serves 4

1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 potatoes, scrubbed and diced
400ml vegetable stock

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat cooking spray in a large sauté pan.

Cook the onionover medium heat for 2 minutes.

Stir in the ginger, chillies,garlic, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods,bay leaf, and cayenne and cook for 2 to 3 minuteslonger, or until the onion is very soft.

Increase the heat to high and stir in the mushrooms and tomatoes. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until most of the mushroom liquid has evaporated.
