Chickpea Masala

Cook's Note: Make this dish a day ahead to let the spices blend in. Delicious as a side with turkey.

serves 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 2 16-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon whole cumin seed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (optional)
  • 2 tomatoes, cored and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • kosher salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups tightly packed baby kale or baby spinach leaves

Preparation

Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add oil, then cumin seeds; cook, stirring, until seeds start to crackle and pop, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add the onion. Cooks for about 8 minutes, stirring frequently.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix garam masala, ginger, turmeric and 1/2 teaspoon salt with 3 tablespoons water to make a slurry. Let stand for 5 minutes, add to the onions and cook mixture for 5 minutes longer. Add chopped tomatoes, and jalapeno, if using, and stir in. Add chickpeas and stir to coat. Add a pinch of salt and enough water to almost cover the chickpea mixture. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes; if mixture seems too liquid, turn up the heat a bit.

Stir in kale or spinach right before serving; the leaves should be just wilted.

Note: Buy garam masala in the bulk spice section of your local market. This becomes a heartier side dish with the addition of chopped cooked turkey or chicken.

At the delicatessen a serve over enables you to display all of the cakes and also other sweets and sundries which can be on offer. There could be instances that you can use spotlighting to highlight your product. Luckily, new lead retrieval technology can address these problems.

First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure iin writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!
