Number of Servings: 5


    Chickpeas - 1 can, rinsed, drained
    Onions - 2 small, finely chopped
    Garlic: 2 cloves, finely chopped
    Plain (NOT vanilla) Yogurt: 1/4 cup or less, just enough to make the curry slightly sour
    Oil - 2 tbsp (or less, just enough to saute the onions in)
    Hot green chilies: 2, slit (optional)
    Turmeric: 0.0125 tsp (just a pinch)
    Ground cumin: 1 tsp
    Ground coriander: 1 tsp
    Fresh ground pepper: 1 tsp or to taste
    Garam masala powder: 1 tsp
    Salt: to taste - no more than half a teaspoon, because canned chickpeas are fairly salty already


Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the finely chopped onions and garlic on medium heat until they are translucent or even golden brown.

Toss in the chilies if you are using them, together with the salt and pepper and spices and cook on medium-low heat for a minute, stirring constantly

Add in the rinsed and drained chickpeas and enough water to half-cover the chickpeas.

Let the chickpeas cook until they are warmed through (they are already cooked before going in the can, so you don't need to cook for long - maybe ten minutes.

Serve hot with freshly made naan or hot rice.
