1. To "speed-soak" chickpeas: In 6-quart pressure cooker, combine 4 cups water and the beans. (If using a jiggle-top cooker, add 1 1/2 tablespoons oil.) Lock lid into place and heat to high pressure over high heat. Reduce heat just enough to maintain high pressure and cook 3 minutes. Let pressure drop naturally for 10 to 15 minutes (see " Releasing Pressure"). Or "slow-soak" chickpeas: Eight to 12 hours before cooking, in large bowl, combine chickpeas and enough water to cover by 1 inch. Cover bowl and set chickpeas aside to soak. 2. Drain soaked chickpeas, rinse, and set aside. In 4- or 6-quart pressure cooker, heat oil over medium heat. Add cumin, mustard, and fenugreek seeds and toast, stirring constantly, until they begin to pop and emit a fragrant aroma - 20 to 30 seconds. (Spices can burn easily, so pay close attention, if they begin to darken as soon as they are added, turn off heat, and toast in residual heat, stirring constantly.) 3. Stir in coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, bay leaf, and red pepper. Add onion and ginger. Cook, stirring, until onion begins to soften - 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in chickpeas and just enough of the water to cover. 4. Lock lid into place, heat to high pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to just enough to maintain high pressure and cook 10 minutes. Let pressure drop naturally for 10 minutes (see " Releasing Pressure"). Remove lid, opening it away from you, to allow any remaining steam to escape. 5. If chickpeas are not tender, lock lid back into place and return to high pressure a few more minutes. Reduce pressure using quick-release method. 6. To thicken curry, with slotted spoon, remove about 1 cup of chickpeas to bowl and mash well with fork or puree in food processor. Stir back into cooker. Remove bay leaf. 7. Stir spinach, tomatoes, and salt to taste into curry. Simmer until spinach is cooked - 2 to 3 minutes. http://dynamic.homearts.com/cgi-bin/food From Ellen C.
