  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic, ginger, and green chile pepper in hot oil until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
  2. Season onion mixture with cumin, paprika, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, and cayenne pepper; stir. Cook onion with spices until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, chickpeas, and tomato sauce; stir and simmer until the tomatoes soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir yogurt into the mixture until the color of the mixture is even; simmer until again hot, about 5 minutes more. Remove pan from heat; stir lemon juice and salt into the mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You may want to add more than one green chile pepper if you like to have things very spicy. I generally use 2 jalapenos for this recipe.

I tried it for breakfast one day and I loved it, Great taste as it is.

Love this. So delicious, a terrific balance of flavors... Just A+ all the way around. Even my husband, who doesn't particularly like chickpeas, liked this.

So so so good. Finally a recipe that matched the taste of a local restaurant’s channa masala that sadly closed down. I used (2) Serrano peppers and 3/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to bump up the he...

Delicious! Followed the recipe and very happy with the results! Spicy and well balanced flavours. Can’t wait to enjoy the leftovers!

I love this! I forgot to buy yogurt so I subbed sour cream and it was great.

This is a great weeknight recipe, very simple and delicious. I don't use tomatoes and instead use a small can of tomatoe sauce. Has a rich flavor and is easy on the wallet too!
