    Rapeseed oil

    If you want a light alternative to other cooking oils, rapeseed is a great choice and has…

  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp tikka masala curry paste
  • 2 tsp nigella seeds
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 400g can chickpeas
  • 460g jar roasted red peppers, drained and chopped


  1. Heat the rapeseed oil in a large pan. Add the garlic, fry for 30 secs, then add the tikka masala curry paste and nigella seeds.

  2. Stir for another 30 secs, then add the chopped tomatoes, chickpeas and roasted red peppers. Simmer for 10 mins, adding a splash of water if it looks too thick.

Made this several times - both with jarred peppers and fresh (jarred are slightly sweeter). Really nice, particularly with some yoghurt.

Quick & simple to make & packs plenty of flavour.

This was delicious. I didn't have roasted red peppers so fried a chopped pepper in the oil. No nigella seeds either - but despite this the finished dish was five-star worthy. Very yummy as well as low fat and low calorie - what's not to like?

Is this suitable for being stored in the fridge/freezer and eating at a later date?

Hi there,Thanks for your question. Yes, you can keep this in the fridge for a couple of days or, if you know you won't get through it, freeze it on day of cooking - although we think best results are achieved without freezing. We have a useful guide to leftovers with information about storing and reheating, plus a guide to freezing you may find of interest.
