Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic, ginger, and green chile pepper in hot oil until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
  2. Season onion mixture with cumin, paprika, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, and cayenne pepper; stir. Cook onion with spices until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, chickpeas, and tomato sauce; stir and simmer until the tomatoes soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir yogurt into the mixture until the color of the mixture is even; simmer until again hot, about 5 minutes more. Remove pan from heat; stir lemon juice and salt into the mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You may want to add more than one green chile pepper if you like to have things very spicy. I generally use 2 jalapenos for this recipe.

One of the best homemade Indian recipes I have tried. I followed the recipe almost exactly except that I 1) used canned green chiles because I forgot to buy a fresh one 2) added fresh cilantro at the end (along with the lemon juice). Served with jasmine rice and oven roasted cauliflower. Hubs liked it and so did the kids!
