indian-chick-peas recipe

 Indian-style chick peas 
 1 large onion, chopped coarsely
 4 cloves garlic, minced
 1/2 tsp each cumin, fenugreek, cinnamon, mustard seeds, (or 1 1/2 tsp. garam
 masala, or about this much of any other Indian spices -- I do it
 differently each time) 
 2 cans chickpeas (about 3 1/2 cups I think)
 juice of 1/2 lemon
 3 Tbsp. no-fat tomato paste (if I can't find this, I boil down tomato
 sauce until it's thickened)
 2 tsp. peanut butter
 Saute onion and garlic in nonstick pot until slightly browned. Add Indian
 spices and cook about 30 seconds, or until spices start to give off
 wonderful smells and turn slightly brown. Add chick peas WITH HALF THEIR
 LIQUID if canned, with some cooking broth if cooked from scratch. Add
 lemon juice and tomato paste. Cook about 10 minutes, to let chickpeas heat
 through. Stir in peanut butter and cook a few minutes more. Season with
 salt and pepper to taste and serve over rice.
