  • 2 bay leaves 
  • 1 tsp. of the powders of: cumin, coriander, paprika, garam masala & 1/2 tsp. of turmeric

  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled 
  • 2 jalapeo chillis, seeds removed 
  • 1 red chilli, seeds removed

Instructions

  1. In a big pot, turn on the heat and cook the onion, with the 1 tsp. of salt and bay leaves. Cook until the onion is soft and almost transparent
  2. To the soft onion add the following: 1 tsp. of cumin, coriander, paprika, garam masala & 1/2 tsp. of turmeric. Stir.
  3. In a blender/food processor: process the 6 tomatoes, 4 cloves of garlic, 2 jalapeno chillis, 1 red chilli & the 1 tsp of ginger. Process this until a smooth mixture has formed. Now add this mixture to the pot. Stir this mixture into the onions.
  4. Add 6 cups of stock/broth. Stir the broth into the soup mixture.
  5. Add the cooked chickpeas (be sure to discard any of the water that you cooked the chickpeas in). Stir the mixture. Leave to simmer for a little while.
  6. Using a stick blender, blend the soup until a smooth consistency forms and the chickpeas have disintegrated. Alternatively, blend the soup in batches in a food processor until a smooth consistency forms.
  7. Stir in the coconut milk.
  8. Serve with coriander on top.

Enjoy!
