  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.


  • 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.

I tried it for breakfast one day and I loved it, Great taste as it is.

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 a...

I did make this again but I cut down on the lemon. The first time I made it I used a fairly large lemon and it was too much.

I would do this again. Even my picky non-tomatoe eating toddler just crushed it.

This is simple and great, simply great! I doubled the tomato sauce and yogurt as well as added chicken. I, too, used canned green chilies and it was still delicious!

I made this as directed, and we absolutely loved it!

A little time-consuming but a delicious and healthy weeknight meal. Bonus: keeps well as leftovers

Very good. A perfect weeknight meal.

we used kosher salt and it tasted great!
