Spice-roasted tomatoes, chickpeas and chilli

A satisfying vegetarian main, or a very able sidekick.
Ben Dearnley



1.Preheat oven to 200°C and line a large oven tray with baking paper. Line another tray with a clean tea towel and spread chickpeas on tray to absorb excess moisture.
2.Cut chillies in half lengthways, keeping the stalk attached, remove and discard seeds. Combine mustard and cumin seeds, chilli flakes, turmeric, oil and curry leaves in a large bowl. Add chillies, chickpeas and tomatoes, season to taste and toss to combine.
3.Spread mixture out over tray and top with extra curry leaf sprigs. Bake, turning occasionally, until tomatoes collapse and chillies are tender (15 minutes). Serve with yoghurt.
