Ingredients

  • 400 g tin chickpeas, drained (240g, or ~ 1 1/4 cups, when drained)
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 100 g tinned tomatoes (~ 1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Few sprigs fresh coriander (cilantro), finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 2 individual naan breads (or other flatbreads)
  • To serve: tomato wedges, sliced red onion, fresh coriander (cilantro)

Instructions

  • Tip the chickpeas onto a baking tray, and add the four spices, along with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Drizzle with a little oil, and mix well. Roast at 190°C (Gas Mark 5 / 375°F) for around 25 minutes, or until fairly crispy, stirring once halfway.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes (around 1/4 of a standard tin) and sliced red onion to the pan, and mix to combine. Place in the oven for a further 10 minutes or so, until cooked to your liking.
  • To make the herby yogurt, just add some finely chopped coriander (cilantro) to some plain Greek yogurt, and mix.
  • Before serving, warm the naan bread in the oven for a few minutes, then serve with the Indian roasted chickpeas, some extra red onion and tomato wedges, and a dollop of the herby yogurt.
