Indian Chickpeas


Here is one of our favorite "vegetarian dish". We always include it
to our menu for an indian dinner.



250 gr of chickpeas (1 cup)
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 oinon chopped
2 cm cinnamon stick
4 cloves
2 garlic cloves, squashed
2 cm fresh ginger, chopped
1 green chili pepper, finely chopped
2 tsp ground coriander
3/4 cup of chopped tomatoes (from a can)
1 tsp garam massala
1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
-------------------
Soak chickpeas overnight, rince, cook in water until tender. Drain,
KEEP THE COOKING LIQUID!

In a frying pan heat the oil, fry oinon until golden. Add cinnamon
and cloves, cook a few seconds. Add garlic, ginger, chili pepper,
ground coriander and cook 5 minutes, stirring.
Add tomatoes, with the juice and cook until all liquid
has evaporated.

Add the chickpeas to the pan, mixe well, cook 5 minutes.
Pour the cooking liquid of the chickpeas and simmer for 25 minutes,
until all the liquid is gone.

Sprinkle with the garam massala and cilantro.

Can be served hot of cold.

This looks delicious! Seems simple to make too, as long as you have the spices. I'm currently on a naan kick right now.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi! I arrived here just by chance, clicking on the "next blog" feature, since I was pretty bored. You cannot imagine how happy your blog has made me. I loved your blog!!! I love Indian food!!! however I never tried to learn it, I always thought something that tastes so good must be deadly complicated... I am gonna try some of your recipes ;-)
Would you mind if I place a link to your blog in my blog?

Thank you for posting these great recipes! My husband and I love chick peas. However, some of these ingredients I do not know...garam massala? Do the cloves have to be removed before serving? I was told not to eat them, just cook with them for flavour. LOL There is still alot I need to find out about cooking. ;)

GREAT SITE! Been trying to incorporate more things like this in our menu! You know how to make BORA? (it's those long string beans?) My grandmother made it and it's awesome. She tried to explain it to me but I couldn't follow. You know how to make vamazelli.. (sp?)
