Chickpea Curry With Yogurt

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Wynner

From CookingLight Whole milk yogurt contributes a silky, creamy texture to this mild vegetarian stew from India. Serve with steamed or sautéed spinach and Indian bread. Replicate naan, the Indian flatbread, by cooking flour tortillas in a grill pan or cast-iron skillet until blackened in spots. The cinnamon sticks and bay leaves are removed before the dish is served, but the cardamom pods are more difficult to fish out. Be careful as you eat not to bite into one.
