Cuisine: Indian
Indian Potatoes and Chickpeas
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic, or about 4 cloves
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped into bite-size cubes (I used 2 sweet potatoes and 2 russet potatoes)
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  1. Parboil or microwave the potato chunks. I microwave them for about 5 minutes.
  2. In large, deep saute pan (I use a 4-qt), add the onion, cinnamon, and cloves and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is caramel brown, about 8 minutes.
  3. Stir in the ginger, garlic, ground coriander, cayenne pepper to taste, and turmeric. Cook a couple more minutes, stirring until the spices turn darker and more fragrant.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients--tomatoes, chickpeas, potatoes, water, and garam masala. Mix well and bring to a boil over high heat.
  5. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until very tender, about 45 minutes. Most of the liquid should be gone. Enjoy!
