  • If using dry chickpeas, pre-soak them overnight and cook them until soft, ideally in a pressure cooker. If using dry lentils, soak them for at least 4 hours. If using canned chickpeas and lentils, simply rinse and drain them.
  • Gently heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan, then add the onion, ginger and garlic, and gently stir fry for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the carrot, celery and apple, if using. Stir fry for another 5 minutes.
  • Now add the ground spices, the salt, the chickpeas, lentils and rice, along with a cup of water. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until the lentils and the rice are nice and soft.
  • Finally, right before serving, add the coconut milk, stir in, and take off the heat and serve piping hot.
