Curried chickpeas

An easy dish for those days when there’s nothing in the fridge.


1 Tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
Small clove of garlic, crushed
½ can chickpeas
2 teaspoons turmeric

Heat oil in a frying pan and add garlic and mustard seeds. Fry for 2-3 minutes.

Add the chickpeas and turmeric, along with 2-3 tablespoons of water and fry until dry, shaking
the pan to mix thoroughly.


Squash some of the chickpeas with a spatula and leave some intact, they should be quite soft

Serve hot in a flatbread or on the side of a meal.
