Well, we have the winner of the the giveaway. Lucky Moonfairy's name was picked by my daughter out of a little purse. And so funny because I think my daughter would have picked her if she could read them all just to choose that name. So Moonfairy you are going to receive a Cuisinart food processor. Congratulations!
After my heavy post yesterday and the fact that I am completely exhausted by a little four year old waking me up in the middle of the night, every night, for the past four weeks, I will keep this brief.
This is a quick recipe- I mean quick, to pull together for a meal. It is really flavorful too!
Chickpea Tikka Masala
1 can chickpeas
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 cups tomato sauce
1 tablespoon garam masala
1 large onion, minced
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
Saute onion in canola oil. When the onion becomes transluscent add minced garlic cloves and garam masala. Cook for one minute or until the spices become fragrant. Add tomato sauce, sugar, salt, ginger and chickpeas. Let it cook for about fifteen minutes. Pour in the coconut milk. Heat until warmed and serve. Sprinkle cilantro over top. Goes great with rice.
Bench Notes: You can certainly use whole tomatoes, fresh tomatoes or whatever. I used sauce because I had some in the fridge that needed to be used.
