Curried Garbanzo Beans
3 cups cooked garbanzo beans, with reserved liquid
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
3/8 teaspoon ground cloves
3/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons lemon juice, and more to taste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, and more to taste
1 firm tomato, cut in 1/2-inch dice
In a small amount of reserved bean liquid, stir the spices
and heat a few minutes. Stir in the garbanzo beans and
enough of the reserved liquid to just barely cover them.
Stir well, and mash a few of the beans with a fork or potato
masher. Cook the beans over medium heat for about 20
minutes, or until the sauce is quite thick, stirring often.
Remove from heat. Stir in the lemon juice, the chopped
cilantro, and the diced tomato. Taste and correct the seasoning.
Serves 4 to 6. Goes well with Pilau.
