Method:

1. Wash the new potatoes and keeping the skin on cut them into small pieces.2. Open the 400 g tin of cooked black chickpeas and drain the brine out.3. In a sauce pan add the oil and heat it up on medium heat, when the oil is hot add the mustard seeds and wait for them to splutter.4. Add to the pan the passata, followed by the salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder,coriander and cumin powder and saute the mixture until all the spices infuse into the passata.5. Add the potatoes and 100 ml water and cook the potatoes for 7-8 minutes until almost cooked.6. Add the chickpeas, lemon juice and jaggery and cook the curry for a further 7-8 minutes until potatoes are fully cooked and the gravy has thickened. You can add a little more water if the curry appears dry.7. Turn off the heat and transfer the curry to a serving dish and garnish with the fresh coriander NB-If you are not able to get jaggery add 1/2 teaspoon of palm sugar or brown sugar. I used precooked tinned chickpeas in my curry, you can used the dry variety  which can be soaked overnight and cooked the next day in a pressure cooker.

I have had lots of questions as to where to purchase these black chickpeas. They are available precooked in tins in any Asian aisle of major supermarkets or Indian grocery stores.You can also purchase the dried version which would need to be soaked over night and cooked in a pressure cooker to get best results.

  23. Wow that looks totally delicious. I love chickpeas. Do you think you could use sweet potato in this instead of regular potatoes as they're a lot better for my diabetes?
