DIRECTIONS

  • Put a large saucepan over a medium heat, then add a little oil, the spring onions, garlic and coriander stalks. Cook for about five minutes, or until the spring onion is soft and sweet.
  • Add the turmeric and cook for a couple of minutes to toast and release the oils. Add the chickpeas, stock and coconut milk, the zest and juice of both lemons, and the squeezed lemon halves to the pan.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer on a medium-low heat for 20 minutes, until slightly thickened and a vivid yellow.
  • In a separate pan, heat three tablespoons of oil, and fry the shallots over a medium-low heat until golden and slightly crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  • Once the stew is ready, scoop out the lemon halves, stir through most of the herbs and serve topped with the crisp shallots, chili flakes and remaining herbs.
