I'm looking to make a chick pea or lentil curry recipe with students. Anyone got a fav recipe?
<ul class="subset">[*]2 tbsp vegetable oil [*]1 tsp cumin seeds [*]1-2 red chillies , deseeded and chopped [*]1 clove [*]1 small cinnamon stick [*]1 bay leaf [*]1 onion , finely chopped [*]½ tsp ground turmeric [*]2 garlic cloves , finely chopped [*]400g can chickpeas , rinsed and drained [*]1 tsp paprika [*]1 tsp ground coriander [*]2 small tomatoes , chopped [*]1 tbsp chopped coriander [/LIST]<h3></h3><ol>[*]Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Fry the cumin, chillies, clove, cinnamon and bay leaf together until the cumin starts to crackle. Tip in the onion, turmeric and a pinch of salt. Cook for 2 mins until starting to soften, then add the garlic. [*]Continue cooking 4-5 mins until the onion is soft, then add chickpeas, paprika, black pepper and ground coriander. Give everything a good stir so the chickpeas are well coated in the spices. [*]Add the tomatoes and 2 tbsp water. Cook on a medium heat until tomatoes are soft and the sauce is thick and pulpy. Take off the heat and sprinkle on the coriander. </ol>150 kcalories, protein 6g, carbohydrate 15g, fat 8 g, saturated fat 1g, fibre 3g, sugar 3g, salt 0.35 g
(I tend to add a can of toms to this to give a bit more of a sauce)
I am going to try that one grandy!
This is very good indeed lamaddelena. I added cardamom pods to make it even more aromatic.
Here is a link to a thread where I think were quite a few recipes/links to recipes posted:
Hope that helps
