Chickpeas cooked with spices, garlic, onion and fresh coriander.
Heat the oil in a pan.
Add the garlic and shallots.
Stir continuously until the shallots are soft.
It is really important to take time at this stage and make sure that the shallots are cooked, this is so the spices will then be able to infuse their flavour.
Add approx 1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
Add the turmeric, coriander and cumin and stir.
Add a splash of water and cover for a few moments.
Cut the green chilli in half and add to the pan.
Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to the pan.
Continue to stir.
Cook for 5-10 minute, stirring continuously.
When you feel the chickpeas start to stick at the bottom of the pan, add approx 1/4 cup of water.
The dish is cooked when the chickpeas have absorbed most of the water.
Finally garnish with fresh coriander (optional) and serve.
