Preparation

Sautee the cumin seeds and garlic in stock or sherry for 2 mins, then add the diluted tomato paste and cook for 1 minute longer. Then add the chick peas, water, potato, salt, green chillies, ground cumin, and lemon juice. I find that one green chilli makes this pleasantly spicy, but if you like it hot, add cayenne pepper or chili powder at this stage. Simmer for 20 mins. Serve with bread; I like pitta bread, but crusty bread or tortillas work just as well. Adapted from Madhur Jaffreys _Eastern Vegetarian Cooking_. These quantities serve two, but you can easily double or quadruple them. Posted by williams@vmark.co.uk (Pete Williams) to the Fatfree Digest [Volume 14 Issue 5] Jan. 5, 1995.
