Quick Chickpeas-Veggie Stir Fry

This is a quick recipe and you can even use leftover chickpeas that have been boiled to make this tasty stir fry.I have use finely chopped capsicum along with onions here,but you can also add grated carrots or any other boiled pulses along with the chickpeas.It tastes great and this stir fry can also be used to make a nutritious wrap for children.

Boiled chickpeas-1 cup
Onions-1,finely sliced
Green chilli-1,finely chopped
Green capsium-1,finely chopped
Cumin seeds-1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves-4-5
Fresh coriander leaves-2 teaspoons,finely chopped
Salt to taste
Oil-2 teaspoons

-Soak the chickpeas overnight in hot water or for 8-10 hours and boil them in a pressure cooker by adding a little salt for 3-4 whistles.
-Heat the pan and add little oil and let the cumin seeds splutter in oil.
-Now add the curry leaves and finely chopped green chillies.
-Add thinly sliced onions and fry for 3-4 minutes till the onions are a little cooked.
-Now add the capsicum and mix well and add boiled chickpeas and salt and cook till the capsicum is done.
-Garnish with finely chopped fresh green coriander.
-Serve it as a side dish or pack it in yous kid's lunch box.
