Chickpea Balti

Everyone loves a good curry right? Well let us make a healthy and tasty alternative to the traditional takeaway. 🙂

Ingredients:

2 mugs of brown rice

A can of chic peas

A large handful of fresh baby leaf spinach

2 white onions

5 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon mild curry powder

1 can of chopped tomatoes

Salt

Chili flakes

Fresh coriander

Method:

  • Get the rice in a pan and pour over some water. Boil and then simmer for 30 minutes. (Rice always takes AGES.) Drain and plate up.
  • In the meantime (like the 30 mins it’s gonna take the rice to cook) chop the onions and garlic and fry in a little oil.
  • Add all the spices, salt and a sprinkle of chili flakes to your flavour choice.
  • Now drain your chic peas and add to the pan. Mix well with the spices to ensure that they are full coated.
  • Next, add your fresh spinach and stir into your curry mixture until it starts to wilt.
  • Finally add your can of chopped tomatoes and heat through adding salt if required.
  • Serve with fresh coriander and shop brought mango chutney.
