Zaatar-Spiced Chickpeas Stir Fry
Zaatar seasoning mix is a Middle-Eastern spice mix comprised of sesame seeds, dry herbs, and spices. Recently there are many recipes coming in blogs made with this spice and I wanted to also try this spice. I found them at a local farmer's market nearby. They also had some ready-made flat breads sprinkled with this spice. I loved the flavor of this bread and wanted to try out something else with the same spice. I tried adding it to soups and this time with a simple stir fry. If you are looking for a different recipe with chickpeas other than the regular channa masala, you will love this. This goes well with almost everything, rice quinoa, rotis or even with salads. My favorite is a veggie wrap with salad vegetables along with these chickpeas.
1. Boiled chickpeas, 2 cups.
2. Diced onion, 1 cup.
3. Garlic, 2 crushed.
4. Zaatar seasoning mix, 1-1/2 tablespoon.
5. Paprika, 1 teaspoon.
6. Salt, as per taste.
Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil and saute the diced onions until tender. Then add the crushed garlic, zaatar spice mix, and paprika and saute under low flame for 2 more minutes. Now add the boiled chickpeas and salt, mix everything, cook for 2 minutes under low flame and switch off. Serve with rice or any type of breads.
