Chickpea curry is a popular dish from the Indian subcontinent that is typically made with chickpeas, tomatoes, onions, and a variety of spices. The dish can be made with either fresh or canned chickpeas, and is often served with rice or naan bread.
The origins of chickpea curry are uncertain, but the dish is thought to have originated in the Indian subcontinent. One theory is that the dish was created by the Mughal emperors, who ruled over the region in the 16th and 17th centuries. Another theory is that chickpea curry was brought to the subcontinent by Arab traders.
Whatever its origins, chickpea curry has become a popular dish in the subcontinent, and is now enjoyed by people all over the world. Chickpea curry recipes vary widely, and can be adapted to suit individual taste.
When making chickpea curry, it's important to use good quality ingredients. Start by sautéing onions until they are lightly browned and adding garlic, ginger, and spices. To bring out the flavors of the spices, fry them in a little oil for a few minutes before adding the chickpeas. Once the chickpeas are added, simmer the curry over medium heat. Be sure to season with salt and pepper to taste. Finally, to give the curry a creamy texture, add a splash of coconut milk or heavy cream before serving.
