Method

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, then add the onion, ginger and garlic. Fry for 2 mins, then add the garam masala, give it 1 min more, then add the stock and carrots. Simmer for 10 mins, then add the chickpeas. Use a stick blender to whizz the soup a little. Stir in the beans and simmer for 3 mins. Pack into a flask or, if you’ve got a microwave at work, chill and heat up for lunch. Great with naan bread.

This is a superb recipe. I made this for lunch yesterday. I didn't bother putting in carrots, i substituted them for some small salad potatoes. I also added some tomatoe puree. Also i recommend putting more garam masla or even a splash of Tabasco.

Not bad though slightlly bland. Would rather make the morrocan chickpea recipe.

The idea of a little tomato paste sounds good though.

Might try it with the rosemary 'italian mode' and suggested. Though that means leaving out my favourite bit - the ginger

Made this soup last night, it was amazing. Since I had run out of carrots I chopped up a small courgette, but added a little tomato paste ( approx 1 tsp) to give a little sweetness, also 1/4 tsp tumeric more for the colour than flavour. Even better it is so.. easy to make.

Very good but used some leftover pumpkin in place of chickpeas. Delicious!! P

Nice but needed a little extra kick i.e. chili or more Garam Masala. Will probably add a potato or two next time for a more creamy texture.
