  1. Combine the tomatoes, about half the onion, the ginger, and rice flour in a blender; blend into a paste.
  2. Heat the oil and cumin seeds in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the cumin swells and turns golden brown. Cook the remaining onion in the hot oil for about 3 minutes. Stir the blended tomato mixture, garbanzo beans, curry powder, and salt into the onions; cover and cook until hot, about 5 minutes. Garnish with the cilantro to serve.

really, really good and very easy to prepare. I used ground cumin instead, adding after cooking the onions 5 minutes, and also added 8 0z. of yogurt at the end, cooking maybe 5 minutes.

This was very good, though I did make some modifications to it: I tried to roast the cumin seeds as directed, but I didn't have much luck with that, so I ended up scooping them out of the pan a...

My husband is not a fan of vegetarian so I added ground beef. I did not have cumin seeds, rice flour or garbanzo beans. I substituted cumin powder, white flour, and navy beans. It turned out a ...

Freezes & reheats really well!

Another hit. Used a dry pre-mix of curry spices and canned diced tomatoes. I'm convinced that the curry mix makes it. Also used tapioca flour instead of rice and 1/2 inch of ginger. Not as t...
