I Can't Wait for Chole
i found this somewhere on the internet when i was browsing around. this 
was very good and uses garbanzo beans... 
 
 
a nice spicy indian chickpea recipe. i know, i know. the beans come from a 
can. yeah, yeah. but i was so hungry, and i was in a hurry! remember this 
little dish the next time you're short on time, too! to serve as a 
vegetarian main dish, increase the quantity. reheats well, too. 
 
2 medium  onions, chopped
1 Tbsp  grated fresh ginger
2 Tbsp  chopped garlic
1-1/2 tsp  cumin seeds
1   bay leaf
1/2   inch cinnamon sticks
2 medium  tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp  ground coriander
1/2 tsp  turmeric
  salt
1/4-1/2 tsp  cayenne pepper
2   15 ounces) cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1/2-1 tsp  garam masala
1 Tbsp  fresh lemon juice
 
4   servings
 
in large saucepan over medium heat, heat cumin seeds, bay leaf and 
cinnamon until very fragrant, swirling around to prevent burning. add 
ginger and garlic, cooking until the smell of those fills the air, then 
add onions. saute onions, stirring frequently, and adding drops of water 
to prevent sticking, until they are translucent. add the tomatoes, 
coriander, turmeric, salt, and cayenne. check for seasoning, adding more 
as you prefer. bring to a boil. add garbanzo beans (chickpeas), cover, 
and reduce heat. simmer on low for 10-15 minutes. stir in garam masala 
and lemon juice just before serving. garnish with a sprinkle of chopped 
cilantro if you desire. serve with rice, or indian breads or pitas 
(breads are best warmed on a hot griddle). 
 
this is excellent! i added a bit more cinnamon than the recipe states, 
and it was too much, so next time i will stick to the directions .. this 
wasn't really as hot as i would like, so i will up the cayenne next time 
.. thanks, this was quick, easy and yummy! .
