Curried garbanzo beans (chickpeas) Curry de garbanzos



One of my favorites  food is chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
When I made this curry the other day and  my daughter (20 years) told me,  Mom  remember I do not like chickpeas (she prefers lentils) in any case, I will make and then you can try.

To finish the story, she ate two plates !!
You never know .....

Adatpted 
from:  Edición de cocina revista Mujer(diario la Tercera)












Ingredients



1/2 kilo dried garbanzos (soaked)
or 400 g  tin chickpeas
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
3 tomatoes cut into small cubes
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
sea salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice



Method

You can soak the garbanzo beans overnight.
Place them in a large bowl and cover with cold water. The chickpeas will expand to over souble their size. Cover the bowl with a clean towel kitchen and let them  soak overnight.
Drain the water and rinse the beans before cooking.
Simmer  in a pot  about 1 1/2 hour.Or until are softened.



Heat the oil in a pan  and fry the chopped onion for about 8 minutes or until onion is softened.
Add the garlic, ginger, cumin, cardamom, turmeric,  black pepper  and salt.
Leave on the heat for 5 minutes and add the chopped tomatoes.Stir well.
Cook another five minutes.

Add the chickpeas with tomato mixture and seasonings.
Stir and cook over low heat for 6-7 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.

It can be served with basil leaves or parsley.

  1. Gloria, Looks good! I don't think that we've ever even tried to cook with garbanzo beans/chickpeas, or any other curried beans either! We'll have to give it a try... About our only garbanzo bean experience has been from a salad bar in a restaurant. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  16. I love that this is vegetarian! Also, I believe chickpeas (like lentils) are a great source of protein and healthy fat. Since I am a vegetarian, I try to put lentils and chickpeas in a lot of what I eat to replace the "meat" nutrition.

    BTW, great images of your food! Very mouth watering ;-)
