I love how easy this dish is to make for all the flavor you get!!!

What You Will Need:

2 C Dried Chickpeas (Soak in water overnight then cook on medium heat for 2 hrs or until tender.) As always, using canned chickpeas is fine just use 4 and drain, and rinse well.

3 Tbsp Whole Cumin Seeds

2 Jalapeno Peppers, seeds removed, diced

2 Medium Yellow Onions, diced

3 Tomatoes, diced

2 Tbsp Spicy Garam Masala

1 Tbsp Powdered Ginger

1 Tbsp Turmeric

1 tsp Salt

4 C Chicken or Vegetable stock (Homemade if you can)

*Directions:

Turn on the music, pour a drink, and prep your Mis en Place (Loves! Tonight I chose to listen to Nina Simone and had a small scotch.) šŸ˜‰

In a large pot on the stove set to medium high heat, add the whole cumin seeds and toast them until they start to crackle and release their wonderful aroma. I add a little chicken stock after they are toasted to prevent sticking.
