This super quick and easy Chickpea rice is perfect for a speedy midweek vegetarian dinner for the whole family!

This is definitely one of our favourite dishes!!

This rice pulao is very filling on its own, but we prefer to pair it with our famous achari chicken recipe. Chickpeas are quite nutritious which is why they are very healthy to incorporate into your diet. The spices give the rice a beautiful aroma and flavour. 



Wash and soak 3 cups of rice in water for 30 minutes

Step 1

Turn the stove on to a high heat and place the oil and butter inside the pot. Stir to prevent the butter from burning at the bottom of the pa.

Step 2

Add in the whole cumin and stir. Then leave to fry for 1 minute

Step 3

Once fried, put the ginger garlic paste and whole green chillies inside. Leave them to cook for 1 minute. Additional water can be added if needed.

Step 4

Add in the fried onion, garam masala, coriander powder, turmeric all together. Stir well and allow to cook for 2 minutes

Step 5

Once it has cooked add in the Cumin powder and chopped tomatoes and leave to cook for 5 minutes. Add a 1/4 cup of water when required

Step 6

Add the boiled chickpeas and cook in the masala for 1 minute. Now, add the water and bring it to a boil

Step 7

Drain the water from the rice and add it to the pot.

Step 8

Add the salt and stir well. Leave to boil

Step 9

Once the water goes a little below the rice level cover with a lid and cook for 15-20 minutes on low heat

Step 10
