Deseed and finely chop the chilli, garlic cloves, pepper and whites from the spring onions. Heat the oil in a pan and then add the chilli, garlic, pepper and spring onions. Fry for around 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place a medium saucepan of water on to boil.

While the water boils, chop the tomatoes into wedges and add with spices and chickpeas into your sauté pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the bouillon powder, add a few tablespoons of water and leave to simmer gently.
