This is such a quick, simple and satisfying curry to make – and it must be good because people are always asking me for the recipe. All you need is a fresh onion – the rest can come straight from the store cupboard – so it has become one of my favourite standby dinners. It scales up well if you are cooking for a lot of people. I have a huge catering pot that is great for parties and events. One night, I made the initial curry and then just kept topping it up as the evening wore on.
1 small onion, peeled and finely diced
½ fresh chilli finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tin of chickpeas, drained
1 tin chopped tomatoes
100ml vegetable stock
fresh coriander, roughly chopped
1-2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt (omit for vegans)
How To Cook
- Heat the oil. Add the onions and fry until soft, then stir in the crushed garlic, chilli and the curry powder.
- Cook for a further two minutes then add the chickpeas, tomatoes, and vegetable stock. Simmer for 30 minutes, until reduced.
- Add the Greek yoghurt if you have a creamy sauce. Fold in the coriander, season to taste and serve with rice, chapati or naan bread.
