  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 can Chickpeas
  • 1 Medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • Chilli to your taste
  • Salt to your taste
  • 1 Salad tomato finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic finely chopped
  • Fresh coriander to your taste


  • Heat the oil on a low heat for 30 seconds. Tip your onions in and give them a stir. Brown them slowly.
  • When the onions are ¾ browned, toss in the garlic cloves, and give them a stir too.
  • Add your chopped tomato to the mix. Stir for 30 seconds, then sprinkle in your spice blend. Reduce the sauce for 5-7 minutes. Keep that temperature nice and low!
  • Drain your chickpeas and add them to the paste. Pop a lid on and cook for 15 minutes. Have a taste test halfway through to see if the chilli/salt is to your preference.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander. (We recommend a small handful - but feel free to go nuts with it.)
