How to make Lamb and Chickpea curry

  3. Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the ginger, garlic and onions.
  4. Add the sliced ingredients and curry leaves to the pan, then cook for a further 10 to 15 minutes, or until softened, stirring occasionally.
  5. Tip in the chickpeas (and their juice), then crumble in the stock cube. Pour in the tomatoes and 1 tin’s worth of hot water.
  6. Season lightly with sea salt and black pepper, then slowly bring to the boil, breaking up the tomatoes with the back of a spoon.
  7. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low, and simmer gently for 1 hour 30 minutes, or until the lamb is tender and the sauce has thickened and reduced.
  8. Note to occasionally stir and scrape any bits from the bottom of the pan.

My Tip:

Bulking out your curries or stews with pulses and beans is a great way to make your meals go further and save money. Double bonus!
