Ready Steady Cook
I love buying cookbooks. Usually, I just flick through salivating but this year I made a resolution to try new recipes. My signature dishes are getting a bit meh so I recently bought Madeline Shaw’s Ready Steady Glow book. I fancied the chickpea curry but I didn’t have all of the ingredients so I adapted it slightly. Here’s how I made mine…
1 tbspn coconut oil
1 red onion sliced
3 garlic cloves crushed
400g can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
100g frozen peas and sweetcorn mixed
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp ground cumin
Half a pack of cherry tomatoes
Handful of fresh coriander
2 tbspn Greek yoghurt
Heat the coconut oil in a wok on a medium heat, add the red onion and cook for five minutes.
Add the garlic and a tablespoon of water and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
Add the chickpeas, peas and sweetcorn, tumeric, salt, chilli powder, garam masala, cumin, coriander and tomatoes, plus 100ml of water. The recipe said 200ml water but I like a thicker gravy.
Cook for 20-25 minutes and serve with Greek yoghurt and fresh coriander. You can add rice if you want something a bit more substantial.
