Jiffy chickpeas

Chickpeas easy(2)

A jiffy chickpeas recipe for quick lunch which you could take to work or have with pitta bread.

Ingredients

1 tin chickpeas, drained
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon cumin powder
Good pinch chilli powder (optional, use sweet paprika if you don’t like it hot!)
A little salt to taste
Few curry leaves  (optional if you don’t have it but they do add a lovely flavour. It is easier to find these days, I have seen some in Tescos in the veg section and also Schwartz do one in a little bottle – well worth adding to your cupboard)

Method

  1. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds
  2. When the seeds turn brown (1 minute), take off heat and add all the spices, tomatoes & curry leaves
  3. Cover and cook for 10 minutes on low heat until tomatoes are softened
  4. Add chickpeas, cook for a further 3-4 minutes and serve
