Wash and steam the cholia for 4-5 minutes. Don’t overcook them as the fresh green garbanzo cooks very fast. You can also boil them by adding them them to boiling water for 3 minutes and then transferring to cold water. Drain and set aside.
In a pan, heat olive oil and add garlic to it. Sautee for 2 minutes and add the spring onion whites. Sautee for 4-5 minutes till the onions turn soft. Add the steam cholia, along with green chillies and sautee for another 2 minutes.
Add vegetaable stock and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and add basil leaves, flat leaf parsley and salt. Puree this using an immersion blender. If you are using a normal mixer, make sure to cool it down before pureeing.
Transfer it back to the pan, add coconut milk and bring to boil. Serve hot garnished with a swirl of coconut milk, a handful of steamed seeds, chilli flakes and mixed dried herbs!
