Chana masala #2

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
1 medium Onion; chopped
1 Clove (large) garlic; minced
1 tablespoon Curry
1 tablespoon Tomato paste (I used ketchup; how embarassing :)
1 can (15-oz) chick peas drained; reserve liquid
3 tablespoons Chickpea liquid
½ tablespoon Lemon juice
½ teaspoon Salt
Fresh black pepper
Crushed red pepper; optional to taste
1 tablespoon Butter

I don't know how authentic this is, but I whipped it up last night. It tasted great to me.

Heat oil on medium high heat. Fry onions until slightly browned. Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic, curry, and paste. Stir and simmer about 2 minutes. Add chick peas, liquid, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper.

Simmer 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add red pepper to taste. Add butter, stirring through to melt it. Stir and simmer for 5 minutes more or until peas are softened and dish is hot. Serve over rice.
