From: email@example.com This recipe is from INDIAN LIGHT COOKING, which I've told
you about before. It is our *Fave* dal recipe so far. Quick & Easy to fix,
Remove 1 c. chickpeas (including the liquid) from 1 can of chickpeas.
Drain. Coarsely chop. In a food processor or blender, process the
remaining chickpeas and the liquid to a puree. Set aside.
Heat a nonstick saucepan over moderate heat. Add the cumin seeds and stir
until they crackle, about 10 seconds. Add onion, ginger & garlic. Stir
until onion is translucent. Add turmeric, coriander and red pepper. Cook,
stirring, for about 20 seconds, being careful not to burn. Add tomato
sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer 1 minute. Add chopped &
pureed chickpeas. Cook, stirring, 2-3 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
Add salt to taste.* Remove from heat. Add lime juice and stir. YUM!
Serve with rice, whole wheat bread, and a yogurt salad (raitta). "For a
special treat, try Piquant Lime Rice."
*we watch our sodium, so instead of using salt we doubled the lime juice.
This would make a great party dip with pita triangles, if it were pureed a
bit more completely.
