Chickpea Curry

Curry and chickpeas - two of my favourite things and a great combo. This is a very quick and easy meal and also a bit of a store cupboard saviour too. There is no compromise though on taste as is just delicious. This is naturally gluten and dairy free and also suitable for vegans and vegetarians. This freezes well too so i like to make a batch of this to stash some away for the days i don't want to cook. This would be fabulous with my Gluten Free/Dairy Free Naan Bread

  • take the chopped onions and saute them in a large saute pan until softened
  • add the garlic, chilli and ginger and cook for a further minute
  • add the curry paste and spices and cook for a further minute to release the flavours and cook through
  • add the coconut milk, tin tomatoes, tomato puree and water and stir though. Place a lid on the pan and simmer for 20 minutes
  • If you like your sauce smooth - take the pan from the heat and allow a few minutes to cook down and then blend the sauce until smooth.
  • add the chickpeas and return to the heat until warmed and then serve with an optional flourish of fresh coriander
  • this would be fabulos with my gluten/dairy free naan also!
