How to Make Thai Curried Chickpeas

  • Soak the chickpeas for a few hours and then cooked until tender.
  • Heat oil in a skillet, add onions stir fry until they brown.
  • Add garlic and 1 tbsp of the red curry paste.
  • Stir until the paste has dissolved into the oil.
  • Add the chickpeas, tamari/soy sauce, sugar, lime juice and tomatoes.
  • If the mixture is dry, add about 1/2 cup of water.
  • When it comes to a boil, turn down the heat and simmer for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk and warm through without bringing to a boil.
  • Add the remaining 1 tbsp of red curry paste and stir in.
  • Check if you need salt.
  • Add the basil leaves and turn off the heat.
  • Thai Red Curry Paste:
  • Put all the ingredients in the grinder, but add just enough oil to keep the blades moving.
  • Add the rest of the oil if needed, to make a fairly smooth paste.
