  • Add ginger and garlic, cooking until the smell of those fills the air, then add onions.
  • Saute onions, stirring frequently, and adding drops of water to prevent sticking, until they are translucent.
  • Add the tomatoes, coriander, turmeric, salt, and cayenne.
  • Check for seasoning, adding more as you prefer.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add garbanzo beans (chickpeas), cover, and reduce heat.
  • Simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.
  • Stir in garam masala and lemon juice just before serving.
  • Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped cilantro if you desire.
