Chickpea Curry

Post by warda »

I just made this few days ago. It was fast and easy to make and you can find all the ingrediants from here! Something else for a change from chickpeas than hummus.

Chickpea Curry (4-6)
2 cans chickpeas (400gm per can)
3 tablespoons cooking oil or ghee or butter
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1-2 green chilies (, 1 for mildness)
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 can tomatoes with juice
1 tablespoon ground coriander
2 teaspoons garam masala
2 tablespoons lemon juice (or lime)
2-3 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, chopped
Drain the chickpeas and reserve the liquid.
Heat the ghee (butter or oil) in a large saucepan, add the onion,ginger, garlic, chili and turmeric and cook on medium heat until onion is soft and golden.
Add the tomatoes and cook for about 2 minutes.
Add the chickpeas and ground coriander and cook for 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup of reserved chickpea liquid and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Add the garam masala, lemon juice and coriander leaves and cook gently for 2-3 minutes, adding more reserved liquid if needed to make a sauce.
Serve over rice or with breads.
