Step 1: Ingredients:
- one small onion, diced (or half a large one)
- one 14.5 oz can chickpeas, drained
- two carrots, cut into slices
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- good pinch cinnamon
- good pinch cayenne
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup rice (anything you like)
- 1 3/4 cup water
Step 2: Cook the veggies!
Step 3: Add the spices, chickpeas and garlic!
Step 4: Add water and simmer!
Step 5: Make the rice!
I always do 1 cup of rice and 1 3/4 cup of water - bring the cup of water to a boil with a generous pinch of salt, pour in the rice and turn the heat to low and cover. Cook for 18 minutes, turn off the heat, and let sit covered for an additional 10 minutes and then fluff with a fork.
I don't use any butter or oil, but feel free to add some if you'd like. :)
Step 6: Check the liquid level and serve!
This is also a good time to check the seasonings and add more as desired!
Spoon it over rice and eat! Cilantro and parsley are good with this, as is sriracha. :D
