Preparation time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

1 medium serrano
pepper, cut into thirds
4 large cloves
garlic
1 (2-inch) piece
fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 medium yellow
onion, chopped
6 tablespoons
canola oil or grapeseed oil
2 teaspoons ground
coriander
2 teaspoons ground
cumin
½ teaspoon ground
turmeric
2 ¼ cups
no-salt-added canned diced tomatoes with their juice (from a 28-ounce can)
¾ teaspoon kosher
salt
2 (15-ounce) cans
chickpeas, rinsed
2 teaspoons garam
masala
Fresh cilantro for garnish

Directions

  1. Pulse serrano, garlic and ginger in a food processor until
    minced. Scrape down the sides and pulse again. Add onion; pulse until finely
    chopped, but not watery.
  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the
    onion mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
    Add coriander, cumin and turmeric; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  3. Pulse tomatoes in the food processor until finely chopped.
    Add to the pan along with salt. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook,
    stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Add chickpeas and garam masala and reduce
    heat to a gentle simmer; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes
    more. Serve topped with cilantro, if desired.
