  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp tumeric
  • 2 cans chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 can whole plum tomatoes
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sirachi optional
  • basmati rice for 4 servings
  • handful of cilantro chopped


  • Warm olive oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic - saute until softened.
  • Stir in all spices and warm through, approximately 1 minute.
  • Pour in chickpeas, tomatoes, vegetable stock and tomato paste. Bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes, until sauce thickens and chickpeas are tender to the fork. If you like a spicier sauce, add a tsp of siracha sauce.
