I know this is totally not authentic, but in a pinch (and for a non-cook like me), Trader Joe’s makes some pretty good simmer sauces.  You just saute the meat and veg and then add the sauce.  I know we have the masala sauce and at least one more (maybe the green curry) in our fridge right now.  I realize that’s not a real recipe, but for someone like me who can’t cook, they’re a cheaper alternative to Indian takeout. 🙂

I’ve posted this on here before, but here it is again. I could go for some right now… it’s my bff/MOH’s mother’s recipe for channa masala (chickpea curry). I got the channa masala packet of spice/curry at an Indian grocery store.

1 medium onion
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 spoon tomato paste
1/2 spoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
Can of garbanzo beans
1/2 and 1/4 teaspoon channa masala
Lime juice
Basmati rice

Saute onion, oil and cumin together over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, 1/2 spoon of salt, chili powder and coriander powder. Cover and cook for 5 – 6 minutes. Meanwhile, wash and mince a handful of garbanzo beans. Add the minced beans, the rest of the garbanzo beans, 1/2 teaspoon of channa masala. Cover and sit for 10 minutes – stirring occasionally. Add salt to taste. Turn the heat off. Add 1/4 teaspoon of channa masala. Add some lime juice. Mix it all together. Serve with basmati rice.
