Chickpeas, potatoes and peas cooked with aromatic spices in a coconut milk base make this better than any restaurant curry I've tasted.

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  2. Meanwhile; heat the vegetable oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent; about 5 minutes.
  3. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, garam masala, ginger and salt; cook for 2 minutes more.
  4. Add the tomatoes, chickpeas, peas and potatoes. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
