My friend Andrea had given me a book last year entitled "Indian Food Made Easy" by Anjum Anand and it is fabulous!! I got this recipe from her book and ALL of us thoroughly enjoyed them...in fact we had seconds!
- Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the cumin seeds and fry for about 30 to 40 seconds, or until they give off their aroma and start to darken.
- Add the remaining spices and salt and cook for 10 seconds. Add the chickpeas and stir to coat well in the spices. Saute for 2 minutes, then add the water and coriander leaves. Cook for a further minute and serve!
