    Garam masala



    1. 1
      To make masala, mix spices until blended and set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oil over med-high heat. Add onions and saute until light brown, 8-10minutes. Add masala; stir 1 minute or until spices are fragrant.
    3. 3
      Stir in chickpeaks, pepper, salt and 1 T. water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 7 minutes or until the first few chickpeas begin to split. It it becomes dry, add some water. Only add 1 T. at a time. It should be moist but not saucy.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and garnish with cilantro.
    5. 5
      This would be so great scooped up in poori.

      I just wanted to add my 5 stars to this delicious recipe!
      Spice it up a little more if you like, but it's perfect the way it's written. It's my go-to side dish when asked to friends house for pot-luck dinners. You'll never any left overs with this one. Enjoy!

      I loved this. I cheated a bit and used premixed Garam Masala since there's a huge jar of it in the cupboard. The rest of the recipe was prepared exactly as written. Thanks for posting this delicious veggie main course. Made for Photo Tag.
