      Great, basic recipe. I used a can of garbanzos and a can of tomato puree. I added a little (<1/2 tsp) and a pinch of sugar to this. Served it with plain yogurt and some rice. It's a little spicy as is, but cut back the chili pepper to 1/2 tsp and it should be zesty without offending anyone.

      Be aware that this recipe calls for 1 cup of DRY garbanzos, which is why it says to soak them overnight. I love the suggestion to serve with fresh lemon wedges. It adds a fresh bright taste, which compensates for the lack of amchur powder. I also like that this recipe features grinding the onion, rather than mincing or dicing it. I prefer minced, but this is one of the most requested dishes, and I like to change it up sometimes.

      Very good! A little too spicy for the spice haters and not spicy enough for the spice lovers, so adjust accordingly.
