Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2.5cm piece of ginger
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 x 400g tinned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 400g chopped tomatos
  • 4 sustainably sourced white fish fillets
  • Chopped coriander leaves to serve

Method

  1. Put the onion, garlic and ginger, grated, in a small food processor and whizz to a paste. Heat a little oil in a pan and fry the paste for a couple of minutes, then add the coriander, turmeric, garam masala and chilli. Add the chickpeas chopped tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a little vegetable oil in a frying pan. Season both sides of the fish and, when the oil is hot, fry the fish fillets, skin-side down, for 2-3 minutes until crisp and golden. Turn over and fry for a further 2 minutes on the other side. Toss chopped coriander leaves through the chickpeas, divide among plates, then top with the fried fish.

  1. This is a great versatile recipe, we often use the chana massala recipe on it’s own or with other proteins such as salmon or chicken thighs.
