Method

 
Fry onion in olive oil until soft. Add the garlic and the spices and fry for 5 minutes, until cooked and aromatic.

Rinse the tinned chickpeas under cold running water until all the canning liquid has washed away. Add the chickpeas to the spices.

Crush with a fork until all the peas are broken and the mixture resembles a coarse paté. Add salt and pepper and let it cool.

Add the yoghurt, lemon juice and fresh coriander.

Serve as a topping on bruschetta - toasted baguette. To toast the baguette, drizzle olive oil onto the bread slices of and toast under a hot grill.

Serve with a crisp green salad.
