How to make Chiman’s Spicy Chick Peas Soup Spice Blend – Medium Hot.

This can be cooked in a Thermal Cooker if you have one using the instructions below.

If  you don’t have a thermal cooker this spice blend can be cooked in the conventional way using the instructions on the packet but remember you will not save up to 80% on cooking fuel.


  • Chimans Spicy Chick Peas Soup Spice Blend
  • 5 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 medium red onions, finely chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 6 tbsps ripe skinned/tinned tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 225g tinned chick peas
  • 2 tbsps lemon juice
  • Fresh coriander to garnish


  1. Heat the oil in the inner pot over a medium heat.
  2. Add the onions and garlic and fry until golden brown.
  3. Stir in spices and fry for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the tomatoes and stir fry until the tomatoes and spice mixture have combined and turn light brown.
  5. Add chick peas and 240ml of water.
  6. Stir in the lemon juice and bring to the boil.
  7. Put the inner pot into the insulated outer container and shut the lid,
  8. Cook without power for a minimum of 1 hour.

  • Chiman’s spice mixes have a long best before time, however are safe to use after that time. They simply lose some flavour.
  • If you are cooking for less than 4 people you could freeze some of the cooked meal or only use half the packet.
  • If you find the food too spicy or too hot, simply use less than the whole sachet of spices according to taste.
  • If you like more of a chilli kick, add some fresh chopped chilli to the dish or serve in a small bowl so that everyone can have exactly the amount they like.
  • If you find your mouth burning, resist the temptation to drink water. Instead, have a spoonful of yogurt or a lassi drink.
  • We often get asked which oil to use – vegetable oil is the best option as it is light, doesn’t affect the flavour of the spices and it’s healthy too!
  • Best for kids (and adults!) who like a mild curry: Kofta Bhoona (let them roll the balls themselves); Chicken Korma; Chicken Tikka Masala; Cauliflower & Spinach Bhaji
  • An anonymous tip: Try adding a few green peas to the Spicy Chick Peas. It adds colour without upsetting the balance of the dish
