Category: Low Fat

 Ingredients List

  • 4 To 6 cloves of garlic,
  • Crushed or minced
  • 1/2 ts Cumin seeds
  • x Stock or sherry for
  • Sauteeing
  • 1 tb Tomato paste, mixed with
  • 3 Tb water
  • 1 15 oz can chick peas,
  • Drained
  • 1 Medium-large potato, peeled
  • And diced
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 To 2 fresh green chillies,
  • Chopped
  • 1/2 ts Ground cumin
  • x Few drops lemon juice
  • x Cayenne pepper, if you like
  • It hot....


Sautee the cumin seeds and garlic in stock or sherry for 2 mins, then add
the diluted tomato paste and cook for 1 minute longer. Then add the chick
peas, water, potato, salt, green chillies, ground cumin, and lemon juice. I
find that one green chilli makes this pleasantly spicy, but if you like it
hot, add cayenne pepper or chili powder at this stage. Simmer for 20 mins.
Serve with bread; I like pitta bread, but crusty bread or tortillas work
just as well.

Adapted from Madhur Jaffrey's _Eastern Vegetarian Cooking_. These
quantities serve two, but you can easily double or quadruple them.
