Recipe for 2 Servings:
1/2 medium onion chopped
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1/2 in ginger minced
2-3 cloves garlic minced
Salt to taste
Directions: Soak chickpeas overnight in hot water. The next day, drain and combine with twice as much water and salt to taste. Simmer in a pot for at least an hour or use a pressure cooker to cook chickpeas until tender. Drain.
In a pan, heat 1 tbls olive oil. Add spice pack 1. When the spices sizzle, add onion and cook until soft. Add crushed tomatoes, ginger, garlic, spice pack 2, and salt to taste. When you can smell the garlic, add chickpeas and 2 cups water. Cover and let cook until gravy thickens, about 10 – 15 minutes. Serve with puris or on top of rice.
