  1. Blitz the onions in a food processor until very finely chopped. Heat a drizzle of the oil in a large heavy based pan, add the onions, season well and stir in the cumin seeds, turmeric and garam masala and cook for 2-3 mins to soften. Now blitz the garlic, ginger and chilli in the food processor then stir this into the onion mixture and cook for a few more mins. 
  2. Simmer gently and slowly add the coconut milk, stirring as you go and continue cooking on a low heat for about 15 mins until it begins to thicken a little. Then stir in the chickpeas, cooked cauliflower, peas if using and half the coriander.
  3. Add the mango to a different pan along with the sweetener and about 2 tbsp of water, heat gently until the mango starts to break down, adding more water if needed, mash with a fork slightly then tip in the nigella seeds and stir. Serve on the side with the curry.
  4. Warm through and serve with steamed rice and mango chutney, sprinkle over the remaining coriander to serve.
