For the filling:

1x 400g tin chickpeas, drained

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 red onion, peeled and finely chopped

2 tsp mild curry powder

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


To serve:

8-12 slices fresh, crusty bread

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chickpeas, onions and garlic with some seasoning. Gently cook for a few minutes until the onions begin to soften, before adding the sultanas and curry powder. Continue to cook, stirring, until the spices are fragrant. Leave to cool.
  2. Once cooled, lightly mash the chickpeas so that some still remain whole. Stir in the mango chutney, mayonnaise and season to taste.
  3. Spread the mixture liberally over the bread, adding lettuce and onion. Serve immediately.
