Made this for dinner tonight alongside naan and lime coriander rice. It was very very good. I would however add some chopped chilli to the garlic/ginger paste next time for a little "heat". We all enjoyed it. Thanks

Directions See How It's Made
- Either grind the garlic and ginger with 2 tablespoons of water in a small electric gringer, or in a cup with a hand-held processer wand, or pound to a paste in a mortar with a little salt, then work in the water.
- Heat the oil/ghee in a wok or deep fryer pan over moderate-high heat.
- Add the mustard, cumin, coriander seeds and cinnamon sticks.
- Stir a few seconds until the mustard seeds start to pop.
- Add the curry leaves at arm's length and stir for a further 30 seconds or so.
- Tip in the onions, chickpeas, tomatoes and potatoes and ginger paste and cook for another 3 minutes or so.
- Stir frequently.
- Add the turmeric and salt together and stir for another minute.
- Add the coconut mil and bring to a boil.
- Then simmer until potatoes are just cooked through, adding a little water if needed.
- By the time the potatoes are done, the sauce should be thickened and clingy, rather then runny.
- Serve hot, scatter with thje coriander and accompany with warm naan bread.
