I made a recipe from Aarti Party tonight with a bit of Na an on the side. Purely vegetarian with the exception of 1/4 cup of yogurt.
1 large red onion chopped
1 clove of garlic
1/2 inch piece of ginger grated
3 Roma tomatoes chopped
2 T canola oil
1 t cumin seeds
1 t ground coriander
1/2 t garam masala
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t turmeric
1/4 c yogurt
1 T lime juice
1 can (14 1/2 ounce) chickpeas
1 can (14 1/2 ounce) artichoke hearts drained and rinsed
1/2 c water
Chopped fresh cilantro
optional 1 serrano pepper split
Process the onion, ginger, garlic, and tomatoes in a food processor and process till smooth.
Meanwhile warm the oil and once shimmering, add the cumin seeds. (I added a serrano and let it cook in the oil too for a little bite) Once they are done popping, add the onion tomato mixture and saute till the color darkens and it thickens about 10 minutes.
Add the spices and cook 30 seconds then add the yogurt slowly. Stir in the lime juice and water, chickpeas and artichokes. Salt to taste. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Check seasoning then garnish with cilantro.
Man, this was a great recipe. Tasty and filling. The side of hot off the griddle Na an really made it but you could serve it over rice also. Yum.
