Meatless Monday Spicy Indian Chickpeas

by Lucinda Scala Quinn

2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped, plus 1 small onion, sliced (for garnish)
8 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 tablespoons tomato paste
3 15-ounce cans chickpeas, drained (reserve 1 cup liquid)
1 large tomato, in wedges, for garnish
3 hot, fresh green chilies, sliced lengthwise and seeded, for garnish

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and swirl in the oil. Add onion, garlic and ginger. Sauté until soft and lightly golden, 5 to 6 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, garam masala, cumin, coriander, cloves, cayenne and salt. Add to the onion mixture. Cook, stirring to lightly toast the spices, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and cook 2 to 3 minutes more, until the color turns dark red.

Add chickpeas and the reserved liquid. Stir to combine. Cover and cook 10 minutes, removing the cover for the last 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and rest 1 minute. Taste, adding salt if necessary, and serve in shallow bowls garnished with onion, tomato and green chilies.  Servings: 8 as a side dish.
