My friend Brandon gave me this recipe. It is everything I could want in a recipe: quick, easy, cheap, nutritious, and super delicious. You can add extra spices (curry powder, etc.) if you like. Serve with rice and/or naan.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and cook for 1 minute, or just add powder. Stir in the ginger, crushed red pepper, and onions. Cook until onions are soft, about 5ish minutes.
Add tomatoes and cook for 5 more minutes, until nice and saucy. Season with salt and pepper.
Add chickpeas and cook for 5 minutes more. Garnish with cilantro. Yummies.
