METHOD:


To prepare this delicious Indian chickpea curry we´ll start by chopping the onion in small squares, then chop the ginger.

Now, it is time to cook this veggies, turn on the heat to high heat, add 4 tsp of olive oil into a pan and cook the onion and ginger for about 7 minutes.

Whilst the onion and the ginger are cooking we are going to chop the red pepper in squares too.

Then turn down the heat to medium and add 1 tsp of paprika, 2 tbsp of curry, give it a good stir and add the pepper, we are going to cook it for 10 minutes at medium heat.

Now, it is time to peel the sweet potato and cut it into small squares, then remove the sides of the fine green beans, reserve both veggies into a bowl.

If you are using tomatoes, you can use a food processor as I did or if you don’t have a food processor just cut the tomatoes into small squares otherwise you could use a tin of chopped tomatoes.

Pour the fine green beans and the sweet potato to the pan and cook it with the rest of the veggies for 5 minutes at high heat, then add the chopped tomatoes, a cup of cooked chickpeas, chilli flakes, 1 tsp Himalayan salt, 1/2 tsp ground pepper and the coconut, give it a good stir and cook until the fine green beans and the sweet potatoes are soft and ready to eat.

Add the spinach over the curry and mix it, with the temperature of the curry is enough to soften the spinach, in a couple of minutes are done.

Then cook the rice following the packaging instructions.

It will serve 4 people, to serve, add some rice in a side, curry in the opposite side and then top it with young garlic and parsley.
