This was really delicious, but I made a few small changes. First, soak your own beans (I just used garbanzos) and use the soaking water for your soup stock! It is deliciously flavored and full of antioxidants. Next, saute the onion, garlic, ginger, AND ALL the spices. This will enhance their flavor. Also, about the spices, I didn't have garam masala, so I pretty much improvised the entire spice aspect and it was delicious. I used: 1/2 tsp curry, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp cinnamon. With the liquid, I added 3 cardamom pods (cheaper than ground; bought in bulk at farmer's market; no matter what state it's in, don't skip this - it's unique!) and 2 bay leaves. I simmered mine only 45 minutes, but I let it sit longer to let the flavors meld. Also, sprinkle a little salt at the end if you don't use canned ingredients - you'll end up with a more fresh-tasting final dish! I served this over brown rice with toasted, buttered crusty baguette. Comfort food, Moroccan style!
