This dish was featured on the cover-photo of my first demo-tape "Tone Control" sitting on my tubano drum. The idea is: eat well, play well; and mens sana in corpore sano ('a healthy mind in a healthy body').
Preparation time: 20 minutes; serves 3 - 4.
Either soak the chick peas/gungo peas/beans overnight and cook them for 2 hours, or if time is short, open a can and rinse them. Peel and chop the onion and fry it in the oil on a medium heat, stirring often, until it starts to soften after about 5 minutes. Chop and add any garlic, and continue frying until the onions are golden brown, stirring often. In the mean time, wash and cut the broccoli/courgettes. Add the chick peas/beans and stir in so that they are covered in oil. Add the broccoli/courgettes, pepper and spices, then stir continuously for 5 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked.
Serve with brown basmati rice, lashings of tamari, and a salad of sliced cucumber, celery, lettuce and raw carrots. Add spring onions and jacket potatoes for variation.
