    magpie diner's Note:

    I called this just right because it was just the right recipe for the amount of time I wanted to spend on cooking it, and it has just the right amount of ingredients, mainly pantry staples so I wasn't scrounging around for substitutes. I found this on www.manjulaskitchen.com ... she has some fabulous recipes, very easy to follow. I made her parathas as well, best ever for me. Hope you enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pull out your blender, a small one if you have it, and combine the tomatoes, the ginger and the fresh chili if you are using. Puree until completely smooth the set aside.
    2. 2
      In a medium sized saute pan over medium heat, add the oil. Once the oil is hot add in the asofetida followed by the whole cumin seeds. Stir - and once the spices are sizzling, add in the tomato mixture. Be careful, it will splatter. Mix to combine - it takes quite a few stirs to get it combined so don't worry. Let that saute a few minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the next three spices, (coriander, chili powder & turmeric) as well as the salt. Mix that together and let it all mingle together over medium low heat for about 10 minutes. It will reduce down a bit and the colour will begin to get darker.
    4. 4
      Add in the fresh chopped spinach, followed by about 1/4 cup of water. Add up to 1/2 cup of water if you wish. Let that cook another few minutes and then add your chickpeas. You can mash some of the chickpeas with the back of a spoon if you like, it makes the gravy thicker.
    5. 5
      The last ingredient is the garam masala, add it in and simmer for a few more minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro if you like. That's it!

      A delightful recipe! Glad to put my asofetida powder to use too - it doesn't get out as much as it would like to! The tomato mixture reduced very quickly indeed (maybe my tomatoes were on the small side so I didn't have that much to begin with?) so I covered the mixture so it wouldn't dry out completely as I still wanted to give it time to mingle. Thank you for sharing, will surely get made again!

      I went to an Indian market to get some of these ingredients. I had never even heard of asafetida powder! This was a fun recipe to make. I halved the ingredients since I was making it for one person. The flavors worked really well together. Made for ZWT8 India

      This is lovely, magpie! I used Chef Kate's recipe for crock pot chickpeas (you all MUST try this!) and subbed in a big pile of kale for the spinach. It was definitely more than called for, but I admit I didn't measure. This required a bit of extra cook time and water to get the kale cooked down. I also used garam masala. Thanks for posting--this was a hit with the whole family, including the curry-loving 9 month old ;). Made for Veg Swap 35.
