Ingredients

  • 185 Grams dried chick-peas
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2.5 cm piece fresh root ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon Garam Masala
  • 1/2 Teaspoon chilli powder
  • Salt
  • 2 Teaspoons chopped fresh coriander

Directions

Wash chick-peas well, then put them in a bowl, cover with cold water and leave to soak overnight.

Drain chick-peas, then put in a saucepan with 500 ml (16 fl oz / 2 cup) fresh cold water. Bring to the boil for 10 minutes, then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour. In a separate pan, heat oil, add onion and fry for about 8 minutes, until soft and golden brown.

Add ginger, garlic, turmeric, cumin, garam masala and chili powder and fry for 1 minute. Stir in click-peas and their cooking water and season with salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer, covered, for 20 minutes until chick-peas are very tender but still whole. Serve hot, sprinkled with chopped fresh coriander.

Pea Shopping Tip

Legumes are high in a number of nutrients, especially protein and fiber – filling you up with relatively few calories.

Pea Cooking Tip

Beans are done when they can be easily mashed with a fork – make sure to test a few in case they have not cooked evenly.
