I made this tasty recipe for lunch today. I really liked it. DH did not care for it as much. I used a hot curry powder, which really gave the dish a nice kick. From the October 2011 issue of "Real Simple." I had to simmer somewhat longer than specified in the recipe to get the consistency that I liked.

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over med-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring often, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  2. Add the chickpeas, spinach, 2 cups water, 3/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper to the saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is slightly thickened, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, cucumber, cilantro, and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Serve the chickpea mixture with the yogurt sauce and naan.
