  1. Add cooking oil, onions, garlic, thyme, chilli flakes, curry powder and paprika to a large saucepan and stir on a medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes until spices have cooked and onions have softened and become translucent.
  2. Add strained chickpeas and 200ml of water to your saucepan, and turn up to a high heat for 5 to 6 minutes, with the lid on, until it reaches a simmer and your chickpeas become soft. Taste test using a clean teaspoon!
  3. Add the 2 tin of coconut milk to your saucepan and bring to a simmer on a medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes.
