Spicy Chickpea Curry

Sometimes your budget won't stretch as far as you want but you would still like to have a very nice meal. The Spicy Chickpea Curry is so yummy and definitely will not break the bank. If you did not want to have this as a vegetarian meal then you can always add meat, or substitute the chick peas for your choice of meat.

The other great thing about this recipe is that it is so quick and easy to prepare that it is perfect if you get home late and don't want to be cooking late in to the night.


1 Onion (chopped)
1 Garlic clove (grated)
½ teaspoon Cumin
¼ teaspoon Coriander
¼ teaspoon Turmeric
¼ teaspoon Chilli Powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 can Chickpeas
5cm root ginger (grated)
Pinch of Garam Masala
Spinach (optional)
1 Vegetable stock cube


1. Fry the onions in a little oil until soft then add the garlic

2. Add all the spices while stirring continuously

3. Pour in the tomatoes, chickpeas and spinach if using

4. Add the sugar

5. Break up and sprinkle the vegetable stock cube over the mixture and stir

6. Simmer for 20 minutes

7. Serve with your choice of rice or couscous

Such a quick and easy meal to make with plenty left over to take in for lunch the following day. I know when I took some in last time my colleagues were very jealous of the smell.
