Curried Garbanzo Beans

  • 3 c. cooked garbanzos
  • 1 T. oil
  • 1 tsp. each coriander, cumin, turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne
  • 3/8 tsp. each ground cloves, cinnamon
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 1 T. fresh cilantro
  • 1 diced tomato
Heat oil in saucepan; cook spices over low heat for a few minutes.

Stir in garbanzos and enough liquid to just barely cover.
Stir well; mash a few beans with a fork or potato masher.
Cook beans over medium heat for about 20 minutes, or until sauce thickens.

Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice, cilantro (chopped) and tomato.

Variation:
Use 2 cups dry lentils instead of garbanzos; boil lentils until done and mix with spices.
This makes an excellent dal.
