    Chickpea Curry

    This is my recipe for a delicious chick-pea curry called, Chole . Chole in hindi ofcourse, means chickpeas. This dish is eaten all over India and is cooked in a different in every state. My recipe branches out from the North-Indian side, mainly Punjabi style of cooking chick peas.
    Chole (Chickpeas)

    Ingredients: 1 cup chopped onions 2 cups chopped tomatoes 1 can chick peas 1 tsp chopped ginger ½ tsp red chili powder ½ tsp coriander powder ½ tsp cumin powder ½ tsp garam masala ½ tsp dried mango powder (amchoor) ¼ tsp turmeric powder 1 tbsp lemon juice 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves 1 tsp cumin seeds Method: Add cumin seeds to hot oil and allow to crackle. Add onion and fry till lightly browned.

    Add ginger, red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, dried mango powder, and turmeric powder and fry for a minute.

    Add chopped tomatoes and cook till tomatoes pulp. Add chickpeas and a cup of water and cover cook for 10-12 minutes.

    Stir in lemon juice and sprinkle garam masala and coriander leaves as garnish. Spicy Notes: This dish is traditionally served with hot crispy puris and a side of sautéed potatoes, and is a huge favourite at weekend brunches.

    Great recipe, thanks. Try adding two tbsp of coconut paste a minute before you turn of the heat and stir. This skyrockets the taste..trust me :-)

    as far as I can see all ingredients used here ARE from the PLANT kingdom, no animal prodcuts of any kind!

    ...so how can anybody TWEAK it to make it VEGAN?

    (maybe vegans use vege-peas instead of chick-peas?)
