You may be thinking that something so full of flavor shouldn’t be this easy. I’m sure we could cook up a way to make this recipe harder for you to make if we really tried, but we think you’ll love this simple and easy to make chickpea curry. What makes this dish so flavorful are the spices that go into it. You most likely have many of these spices already. Add to the list authentic tej patta Indian bay leaves, garam masala (aromatic spice mix used so often in Indian cuisine), some savory garlic and the citrusy spice of fresh ginger. Chop up some tomatoes and onions. Before you know it, you’ve made one of the world’s favorite curries to be poured over rice, on pasta, over top of your choice of salad, or just in a tasty mound on your plate.
In a food processor, grind 2 of the onions, the tomatoes, ginger and garlic into a smooth paste.
Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat.
Add the remaining sliced onion and fry till a light golden brown.
