Notes: If you prefer a very mild curry, reduce or omit the cayenne.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat, stir onion, ginger, and garlic in oil until onion just begins to brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Add curry powder, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, and cayenne and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Step 2

Add garbanzos and tomatoes (including juice). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors, about 5 minutes. If mixture is thicker than desired, stir in a little water to thin. Add salt to taste. Spoon into serving dishes.

Step 3

Serve with yogurt on the side.

Very tasty! Easy to make and nice on a cold night. I added chopped green bell pepper for some extra veggies.

This was pretty good, but way too spicy using 1/4 tsp of cayenne! I made this as written but I also added one chopped green bell pepper along with the onion. Served with white rice, this made a satisfying meal and was quick and easy to make, but next time I'm definitely curtting down on the cayenne.
