Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds and cloves; saute until cumin seeds swell, about 30 seconds. Discard cloves. Add onion to the pot and saute until lightly golden, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine tomato paste, curry powder, flour, turmeric, garlic powder, ginger, basil, allspice, and salt together in a bowl. Stir in 1 cup warm water.

  • Pour tomato mixture over onion in the pot; stir until combined and thick. Stir in additional water until curry reaches a saucy consistency. Stir in garbanzo beans and bell pepper. Reduce heat and simmer curry, 5 minutes. Add green beans and peas; season with rice wine vinegar, salt, and black pepper. Simmer curry, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Add additional water if curry appears too thick.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger for the ground ginger if preferred. Use fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder if desired.

Substitute potato or rice flour for the all-purpose flour if preferred.

Use frozen green beans instead of fresh if desired.

Delicious! We added a little turmeric and crushed red pepper to the wet masala. We served it over rice with chopped cilantro. I m excited to try it with a touch of coconut cream the next time we make it! Read More

It was delish! I made substitutions just because I didn't have all the ingredients. I used 1/2 coconut milk 1/2 silk milk and added no peppers green beans or vinegar. My family loved it. Spice combinations are perfect! Read More
