channa masala.

I wanted something spicy for a dreary afternoon lunch. So I looked around the pantry and found a can of garbanzo beans. I immediately thought of "channa masala." This stuff was so delicious and so quick to make that I just had to share it with you, lovely reader.

--Heat oil in a pan. Fry garlic, ginger, and onions till the onions turned translucent.

--Stir in the garbanzo beans and add chopped tomatoes and red chillies.

--Season with salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar, coriander powder and red chilly powder.

--I couldn't find the garam masala so I just threw in a spoon of chicken masala powder instead.

--Garnish with fresh cilantro. For an extra kick, squeeze lemon juice over the cooked beans. Serve with hot buttered paranthas.
