This is a Turkish-style vegetarian dish which is like a thick stew and is filling and delicious.
- Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over moderate heat. Add the onions, garlic, cumin seeds and chilli flakes and fry gently without browning for 10 minutes or until the onion is soft.
- Add the turmeric, potatoes, chickpeas and tomatoes and mix gently but well. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer 10 minutes or until thick.
- Add the peas, mix and simmer 3 minutes.
- Taste and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place in a warm serving dish, sprinkle the feta and mint on top and serve with warm pita bread.
