Chickpea and three peppers curry

At home I have a rule that we shouldn't eat meat every day. So if one day we have any kind of meat, the other day I will definitely make a vegetaran dish. Anyway, I try to go with a vegetarian dish as often as I feel like! And my family really loves curries, so this curry was an easy choise!

What we need:

2 glasses ( 1 glass equals 220ml) of boiled chickpeas
1 big onion
1 jelapeno pepper
1 sweet pepper
1 green Turkish pepper ( I have no idea how they are really called! Just long green peppers some with sweet and bitter flavour, others are almost as hot as chillies)
salt and pepper
2 tbsp of olive oil
3 tbsp of curry sauce
1 tbsp of dijon mustard
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 lemon juice
bay leave
1 glass of vegetable stock and 1 can ( 200ml) of tomato juice or finely chopped tomato
some parsley
boiled rice for serving

What we have to do:

1. Chop onion and peppers and fry in a pot with some oil.
2. Add chickpeas, spices, curry sauce and mustard, vegetable stock and tomato juice and simmer for 20 min. If you want thicker curry, you can crash some chickpeas.
3. Add some chopped parsley and lemon juice. Simmer for 2 min and serve with boiled rice. Enjoy!!!
